C. J. Peek

C.J. Peek, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist, is Professor in the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health at the University of Minnesota Medical School. He focuses on behavioral health integration and other care system transformations, organizational effectiveness, leadership development, and productive conversations across disciplines and organizational areas. This work includes development of definitional frameworks for emerging fields of health care in which consistent language is not well enough developed for collaboration across disciplines or geographic locations. Examples include an AHRQ Lexicon for the functions of behavioral health integrated with primary care and a consensus distillation of behavioral health provider competencies to apply across disciplines. He also writes on the need and methods for rapid, relevant research applicable to decisionmaking in realistic settings.
