Description - Treatment of Suicidal Patients in Managed Care by James M. Ellison
Increasingly, mental health clinicians, in America, must care for suicidal patients within managed care systems. This text brings together clinicians, authorities and administrators from private practice and managed care to offer practical guidance on how to improve care and reduce risk for patients. Inpatient versus outpatient treatments, alternative programmes such as cognitive-behavioural strategies and dialectical behavior therapy, adolescent suicide, suicide risk in the elderly, suicide and substance abuse, pharmacotherapy of depression and suicidality, risk management issues such as diagnostic accuracy, and a step-by-step process for counseling everyone affected in the aftermath of a suicide are all detailed in this book. This guide should aid understanding of risk management issues relevant to the care of suicidal patients.
