KINGFIELD — Jayne Britton, a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner, will begin providing adult psychiatric medication management services at Mt. Abram Regional Health Center this November.

She will coordinate with Shannon Munro, FNP, Velma Evans, LCSW, and Cynthia Robertson, MD, at the health center to diagnose, recommend medications, deliver related education and perform routine monitoring. Patients at the health center will be able to connect with Britton via a secure video conferencing system instead of having to travel outside of Kingfield to access the service.

Britton obtained an undergraduate degree in nursing from the University of Southern Maine in 1983 and a master’s degree as an adult psychiatric nurse practitioner/clinical nurse specialist in 2009.

Britton joined Sweetser in 2010 and will provide the telemedicine service through a formal contract between HealthReach and Sweetser. Mt. Abram Regional Health Center is part of HealthReach Community Health Centers, a group of 11 federally qualified health centers in Central and Western Maine.
