RAMP was created to support pediatric clinicians that increasingly recognize the imperative to meet the mental health care needs of their patients, many of whom will never see a mental health specialist.
RAMP is a collaborative effort developed with our pediatric primary care colleagues both in the community and academic resident clinics, at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago.
The curriculum has been found useful to pediatric clinicians in our Mood, Anxiety, ADHD Collaborative Care Program (MAACC).
We have seen that pediatric clinicians who participate in brief, focused training display increased confidence and willingness to assess and manage ADHD, anxiety, and depression when they have access to ongoing consultation and support. Generally speaking, the more clinicians see, the more adept clinicians become, and, the more clinicians enjoy being able to provide mental health care.
Our team loves working collaboratively with pediatric primary care providers. RAMP is intended to be a free and accessible source of mental health care reference, resources, and curriculum presented in a variety of formats to meet the needs of trainees as well as experienced primary care clinicians.
We'll continue to expand on the topics, learning modules, and patient resources but your feedback is critical. If you would like us to address specific topic or question in our material, please contact us.
We look forward to partnering with you on RAMP!
