Ken Duckworth From Insights to Actions – Strategies for Care Transformation (TIPS 2017)

Digital technologies have the potential to transform mental health care, particularly among groups that have traditionally been hard to reach due to lack of access, education, or resources. In this session, leading experts in technology, policy, and public health discuss how we might take the insights generated from clinical and basic research and translate them to improvements in care and access to care. Discussion focuses on how to address the gap between the availability of mental health services and the pressing need for such services globally.

This talk was part of the 2017 Technology in Psychiatry Summit, sponsored by the McLean Institute for Technology in Psychiatry on November 6-7, 2017, at the JB Martin Conference Center, Harvard Medical School. Part of panel From Insights to Actions: Strategies for Care Transformation.
