  1. An integrated regional emergency psychiatry service.

    Article - En anglais

    This paper presents a model of an integrated Psychiatric Emergency Service serving Hamilton, a community of 450,000 in Southern Ontario.

    It describes the evolution of the service and how it has integrated five separate, hospital-run Emergency Psychiatric Services into a single service.

    The principles of the service and ways in which it operates are outlined and the advantages and drawbacks of the model are discussed.

    The authors conclude that such a model leads to a more efficient use of resources and is adaptable to most urban communities with a similar, or even larger population.
