Despite strong evidence to support the use of integrated care in the treatment of chronic medical conditions, including DGBI, there are several barriers that have prevented the widespread adoption of integrated care in gastroenterology. While integrated psychosocial care is still aspirational for many practice settings, there are several ways for providers to build their clinics around some of the key principles of multidisciplinary and integrated care models based on their practice needs, access to resources, and patient population. I will discuss a new framework, known as the “3 levels of integrated psychosocial care,” and encourage GI practices to evaluate where they fit within this framework and whether they can “level up” by optimizing their existing resources.

​​​​Objectives for this Grand Rounds include:

  1. Be able to explain, in patient-friendly terms, the rationale for an integrated approach to DGBI care.
  2. Be able to recognize the existing resources in your practice setting that could help your team build a more integrated psychosocial culture.
  3. Know who and how to refer patients for higher-level psychological care when needed.
