Interdisciplinary team approach to emergency psychiatric care

Interdisciplinary team approach to emergency psychiatric care


ANDREW E. SLABY M.D., Ph.D., M.P.H. 1 , RICHARD J. GOLDBERG M.D. 2 , , and STEPHEN R. WALLACE M.S.W. 3 1 Psychiatrist-in-chief, Rhode Island Hospital and Women & Infants Hospital, and professor of psychiatry and human behavior at Brown University, Providence 2 Associate director, department of psychiatry, Rhode Island Hospital and Women & Infants Hospital, and assistant professor of psychiatry and human behavior, Brown University 3 Associate director, outpatient psychiatry, at Rhode Island Hospital Psychiatric problems in the emergency room can best be managed by an interdisciplinary team consisting of a psychiatrist, psychiatric nurse, social worker, and clinical psychologist. Because a psychiatrist is not required to do tasks that can be accomplished by a professional from another discipline, the team approach is cost-efficient. This approach is effective because time is not lost bringing together various consultants for each psychiatric emergency. Problem areas, staffing patterns, and the roles of each team member are discussed.
