In March 2023, the first structured experience of the Psychol- ogist included in Primary Care began in Piedmont, involving about 70 Psy- chologists. The experience makes use of the collaboration of the Regional Order which, in agreement with the Region, has promoted the implementation of the experiment. The Monitoring Group set up by the Regional Order has proposed some implementation methods such as the duration of the path es- tablished in a maximum of 8 interviews and the use of a measurement tool to monitor the outcomes of the paths. An ongoing training course is also pro- posed. The innovative Service of the Primary Care Psychologist provides a timely, appropriate and easily accessible response to the population in close collaboration with General Practitioners to respond to the widespread psy- chological malaise present in this post-pandemic phase.
