In 1995 the Albuquerque Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center created a psychiatric primary care clinic with the goal of providing both comprehensive psychiatric and general medical care to veterans suffering from chronic mental illness. The clinic team included a physician who was board certified in family medicine and psychiatry, a physician's assistant, and three social workers and two clinical nurse specialists who provided case management services to enrolled patients. Continuity of care and communication between team members was strongly emphasized. Patients were monitored as outpatients in the same clinic space and by the same providers for both psychiatric and medical problems. The team was also involved in the management of the patients when they were hospitalized.In 1995 the Albuquerque Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center created a psychiatric primary care clinic with the goal of providing both comprehensive psychiatric and general medical care to veterans suffering from chronic mental illness.
