The learning collaborative sessions will be help monthly to engage providers in training, learning, and sharing of their own implementation and quality improvement plans. You will additionally have the opportunity to work one-on-one with Dr. Leslie Marino, a physician-scientist whose research is focused on the implementation of evidence-based practices for people with co-occurring disorders, involved in multiple training, research, and implementation efforts at the state and county level. The learning collaborative can be utilized by those that do not attend the waiver training, such as staff and administration. The learning collaborative will be 6 months long.
