The research of John M. Wilkinson, M.D., focuses on health care delivery, improved systems for integrated behavioral health, patient education and preventive services.
Significance to patient care
The DIAMOND program systematically facilitates close collaboration among primary care providers, consulting psychiatrists and other mental health professionals, and nurse care managers to provide ongoing support for patients with depression and anxiety. This results in faster and more durable recovery and improved functioning in their families, jobs and communities.
Evidence-based screening recommendations ensure that systems are developed that reliably deliver those services that prevent or limit serious illness — and also prevent harm and waste from unnecessary testing — while always considering patient preferences and values.
