NORWALK, Conn., Nov. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US announces that Psychiatric Times, a leading community for Psychiatry and Mental Health professionals, covered last month's American Psychiatric Association Institute on Psychiatric Services meeting, an annual event that, this year, focused on issues that are transforming psychiatric practice and reforming healthcare delivery.
A series of videos from that meeting highlights key issues, including:
- Serving the Underserved: Who Needs Mental Health Care? The experience of giving supervised mental health services for uninsured, largely undocumented patients is described.
- The Role of Psychiatrists in Integrated Health Care The depth and duration of medical training in psychiatric residency is yet to be determined. Given the increasing emphasis on integrated care, the role of psychiatrists is changing.
- A Risk Stratification Approach to Alcohol Detoxification The challenges of identifying patients at risk for alcohol withdrawal can be mitigated with a Risk Stratification Questionnaire, which has broad implications for psychiatric care.
- Spiritual Matters: Inspiring Clinical Care A patient's spiritual "framework" can hold the key to therapeutic breakthroughs.
