An Updated Model for the First-Time Hospitalization of Patients with Borderline Personality Disorder: Two Illustrative Case Reports

An Updated Model for the First-Time Hospitalization of Patients with Borderline Personality... Patients with borderline personality disorder can be difficult to treat on psychiatric units, especially since long-stay units specializing in the treatment of patients with borderline personality disorder are now few and far between. With the shorter length of hospital stay today, clinicians must work hard to establish the diagnosis of borderline personality disorder, adjust medications, stabilize the patient, and then find the appropriate outpatient treatment plan. Future research is needed to figure out the best way to accomplish these tasks and to identify which patients with borderline personality disorder respond to which treatments. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Psychiatric Quarterly Springer Journals

Abstract

Patients with borderline personality disorder can be difficult to treat on psychiatric units, especially since long-stay units specializing in the treatment of patients with borderline personality disorder are now few and far between. With the shorter length of hospital stay today, clinicians must work hard to establish the diagnosis of borderline personality disorder, adjust medications, stabilize the patient, and then find the appropriate outpatient treatment plan. Future research is needed to figure out the best way to accomplish these tasks and to identify which patients with borderline personality disorder respond to which treatments.
