“CSC OnDemand: An Innovative Online Learning Platform for Implementing Coordinated Specialty Care”
In response to the growing need for training on interventions to address first episode psychosis, the Center for Social Innovation (C4) has partnered with experts in Coordinated Specialty Care (CSC) to develop and test CSC OnDemand: An Innovative Online Learning Platform for Implementing Coordinated Specialty Care. The product builds on the findings of the Recovery After an Initial Schizophrenia Episode (RAISE) studies, funded by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). RAISE examined team-based models of care for people early in the course of schizophrenia. Through a Fast Track Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant, investigators will prototype, test, refine, and evaluate the impact of CSC OnDemand.
