Home arrow Health arrow Big Book of Emergency Department Psychiatry



Psychiatric emergency medicine remains a very challenging field within emergency medicine. Fortunately, this has been recognized by governing bodies such as the American College of Emergency Physicians. Emergency psychiatric care is slowly improving nationwide. It is my hope that the readers of this book will play some role in it and become the leaders who will spearhead these changes for the patients that so deserve it.
