  1. Pharmacotherapy in outpatient psychiatric practice.

    Article - En anglais

    Objectives

    This article examines some of the factors that influence the extent to which psychiatrists provide pharmacotherapy to their outpatients.

    Method

    Data from the 1988-1989 APA Professional Activities Survey are used to define the characteristics of psychiatrists who prescribe medications to a high, medium, and low proportion of their outpatients in treatment.

    Outpatient assessments, evaluations, or consultations were excluded from this analysis.

    Correlations between psychiatric practice characteristics and rates of pharmacotherapy are examined.
