At-Risk in Primary Care



Approved by the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine as meeting the requirements of the state’s legislation on lethal means restriction and suicide prevention.

At-Risk in Primary Care is a CME and CNE-approved online learning experience designed to prepare primary care providers to screen patients for mental health and substance use, perform brief interventions using motivational interviewing techniques, and refer patients to treatment when needed. The learning experience is structured around a series of clinical scenarios where users engage in role-play practice conversations with virtual patients. The simulation was developed in collaboration with the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and is currently utilized in NYC, Maryland, North Dakota, and Oklahoma to train over 10,000 physicians.
