Resumen

MORERA-LLORCA, Miquel et al. An experience of collaboration between primary health care and mental health care in La Ribera Department of Health (Valencia, Spain). Gac Sanit [online]. 2014, vol.28, n.5, pp.405-407. ISSN 0213-9111.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.gaceta.2014.02.014.

Despite the high prevalence of mental health problems among patients attending primary care, diagnosis and treatment of these disorders remain inadequate. Sound training of primary care physicians in how to manage mental health problems is needed to reduce the health, economic and social impact associated with these disorders. Among other elements, there is a need for cooperation between primary care physicians and mental health services. Distinct models are available for such collaboration. In 2006, our health department started a collaboration between these two levels of heath care, using a liaison model. Delays until the first specialist visit were reduced and satisfaction among health professionals increased, although these results should be interpreted with caution. Evidence has recently accumulated on the usefulness of the collaborative model, but evaluation of this model and extrapolation of its results are complex. We intend to evaluate our model more thoroughly, similar to other projects in our environment.
