The authors describe a semi-annual program for multidisciplinary peer review and supervision that is in use at two rural adult and child mental health and drug and alcohol service agencies.
The program incorporates semiannual chart reviews and face-to-face discussions held with each clinician by a multidisciplinary supervisory group.
Several quality improvement issues addressed by this program are described, including improved communication, improved clinical diagnosis, the establishment of service parameters, more appropriate referrals for psychiatric and other medical care, and improved clinician skills.
The program represents an inexpensive approach to peer review and supervision that can incorporate university based consultants, improve quality of care, improve clinicians'skills, and be readily applied by clinical supervisors to most behavioral health settings.
