Online provider education opportunities
AmeriHealth Caritas Louisiana is facilitating a Child and Adolescent Level of Care Utilization System (CALOCUS) training for behavioral health providers at no cost to the providers. CALOCUS is a clinical tool developed by the American Association of Community Psychiatrists to evaluate and determine level of care placements for psychiatric and addiction services.
This training is appropriate for psychiatrists, psychologists, advanced practice registered nurses who are clinical nurse specialists in psychiatry or nurse practitioners certified in psychiatry or mental health nursing, licensed professional counselors, and licensed clinical social workers.
