Clinical Video Telehealth into the Home Provider Toolkit

Developers: Jessica L. Larsen, PhD, MA, Kristen H. Sorocco, PhD, Jan Lindsay, PhD, Lindsey A. Martin, PhD, and Kathy L. Henderson, MD

Developed with funding from the South Central MIRECC, the purpose of the CVTHM Toolkit is to equip facilities, mental health providers and clinical champions with the necessary skills and procedures to deliver mental health care to Veterans through CVTHM. The Toolkit is designed to assist facilities in the implementation of CVTHM by having a clinical champion work with frontline providers to facilitate adoption of CVTHM national guidelines and standards. The Toolkit supplements the mandatory trainings found on the Office of Telehealth Services website.

The Toolkit includes:
  • An overview of CVTHM, its benefits, and history at the VHA
  • Steps on how to become a certified provider
  • Tips on technical troubleshooting
  • Instructions for developing a community of practice
  • Resources
  • Contacts
  • An implementation checklist
  • A sample CVTHM session note

The Toolkit is intended for VA facilities and clinicians interested in expanding their skillset to include the use of CVTHM. To best use the Toolkit, it is recommended that facilities first conduct a self-assessment, using the CVTHM Implementation Checklist (Appendix A) to assess areas of strength and need in their current programs. Following identification of areas of need and after addressing the issues, the Toolkit can provide facilities and individual providers with guidance to assist with the transition to CVTHM service provision.
