About POTA

POTA is the FIRST community-based professional training initiative aimed to build community’s capacity to improve access and quality of psychosocial cancer care in local communities. POTA offers interactive workshops designed for local mental health and primary care professionals serving patients in the Greater Birmingham area and nationwide.

POTA will offer interprofessional education (IPE), CME/CE, an open access resource platform, strategies to target primary care and mental health providers, and ongoing outcome evaluation to refine curriculum and strategies.
