Abstract

The authors surveyed psychiatric residency programs to see what educational resources were available to residents assigned to provide emergency services during evening and nighttime hours. Almost half the sample of 89 programs assigned first-year residents to provide emergency care. The primary immediate means of support for the residents was telephone assistance, in 49 per cent of the programs, or the presence of a non-psychiatrist professional, in 35 per cent. The general lack of educational resources reflects the traditional dispositional model of emergency psychiatry, the authors say, with its emphasis on briefly evaluating the patient and referring him elsewhere for services; current training practices cannot meet the goals of the crisis system model in which a comprehensive treatment program is begun in the emergency room.
