Group medical appointments; an introduction for health professionals.

Schmucker, DeeAnn.

Jones & Bartlett


199 pages




A US licensed clinical social worker introduces group medical appointments (GMAs) as a new type of collaboration between a patient's doctor and a behavioral health specialist, to address the complex needs of the growing population with chronic illnesses. After tracing the evolution of the concept and making a case for its benefits based on patient and physician satisfaction survey findings, Schmucker offers guidance on practical matters. She includes questions patients should ask in pursuing such a treatment option, various GMA models, a glossary, and sample worksheets and forms.
