Illness can affect more than just your physical body. Research shows treating a patient’s emotional needs in combination with a medical condition can greatly improve health outcomes.
At Banner Health, our team practices Integrated Psychosocial Care (IPC) – a holistic, collaborative approach to care for your physical, mental, spiritual and social needs. IPC incorporates expert, quality care for your condition or illness as well as compassionate, professional support for your emotional well-being.
Many patients with chronic physical and/or mental illnesses would benefit from IPC. Emotional distress can often accompany conditions such as cancer, neurological issues, disabilities, depression and anxiety. Psychosocial care can help patients learn coping skills to manage symptoms and improve overall health.
During your first IPC meeting, your counselor will talk you through the program. You will also discuss your goals and thoughts on treatment, including medication and therapy to improve mood, sleep, depression and anxiety. After your first meeting, you will routinely meet with your health team by phone, virtually or in person to ensure you get the support you need.
