Conducting systematic case reviews (SCRs) is a critical skill for psychiatrists leveraging their expertise to provide collaborative care in a primary care setting; however, there is little literature to guide best practices for executing an SCR. This column offers guidance to psychiatrists on best practices for conducting SCRs by drawing on experience from psychiatrists who teach collaborative care and who directly observe SCRs in established programs. Furthermore, it describes several common threats to successful SCR and presents potential solutions to assist programs in implementing indirect psychiatric care, an essential component of collaborative care.
