Description

Evaluation of Quality of Care in Psychiatry covers the proceedings of the symposium on Quality of Care in Psychiatry. The book discusses topics relevant to the evaluation of the quality of psychiatric care. Comprised of nine chapters, the book first tackles quality assurance in health care, and then provides a follow up discussion on this topic in Chapter 2. Chapter 3 discusses the 10 assumptions that cripple psychiatrists' participation in quality assurance activities, and then Chapter 4 provides a reactive discussion on this topic. The fifth chapter talks about evaluation of patient care and hospital accreditation. Chapter 6 discusses peer review and the use of psychotropic drugs, while Chapter 7 covers the complimentary discussion on the topic Chapter 6 covered. The eighth chapter talks about the peer review of outpatient psychological services and the ninth chapter provides an afterthought about Chapter 8.Chapter 10 covers the panel and general discussions on the symposium, while Chapter 11 provides the concluding remarks and conference overview. The book will be of great interest to professionals such as psychologists and psychiatrists or even regular readers, since the text covers a very important issue that is a big concern of the society.
