The Telebehavioral Health Institute (TBHI) is happy to offer you an author copy of the original telebehavioral health competencies article published in 2018 by Academic Psychiatry. The journal article applies the CTiBS TBH competencies to psychiatry with an overview of the core domains. It includes specific examples of their application by psychiatrists and other prescribing professionals.
Interprofessional telebehavioral health competencies have been developed to standardize training and improve the quality of TBH care. The seven identified interprofessional TBH competency domains and three levels of expertise (novice, proficient, and authority) are briefly described. More in-depth descriptions and examples of several of the competency domains are presented to illustrate what the competencies look like in practice. Some of the challenges faced in using such a competency framework are discussed.
