Researchers used a preexperimental study design. The sample consisted of 58 participants and the majority of the students were females. An estimated 28 questions using a 5-point rating scale were used to measure the students satisfaction. A clinical case vignette was used to measure the students responses and care recommendations. To reflect the course content twenty-five knowledge questions were used. The measurements included, brief narrative write-up survey and a personal reflection describing the impact of the course.

The article by Vogel, Kanzler, Aikens and Goodie (2016) summarizes and critically evaluates current scientific knowledge about integrated primary care. In their paper they present a call to action in two critical areas: improved clinical/operational/financial research and extensive policy change. They believe that increasing integrated primary care research in quality will allow clinical work to gain a great understanding of which models and approaches work best. According to Vogel at al (2016) integrated behavioral health care is the future of all good primary health
