Institute 7 (ticket)
Treating the Sickest Kids

Inpatient services are important clinical resources in the continuum of psychiatric care. While the expected length of stay has markedly diminished over the past several decades, the number of psychiatric admissions for children has climbed considerably. This Institute examines issues that complicate providing pediatric inpatient psychiatric care, presents several model programs that address challenges to pediatric mental health care, and makes recommendations to further improve the quality and effectiveness of inpatient treatment. Attendees learn to articulate appropriate goals for acute inpatient admission and explore ways to battle barriers to good care. The mandates and challenges of private and public payors are discussed, focusing on strategies for creating effective collaborative partnerships and identifying ways child and adolescent psychiatrists can successfully work with payors for good inpatient results. Also discussed is the need for research focused on the integration of quality improvement principles into inpatient and residential psychiatric care and creating special outcomes measures to assess the improvement.
