- The plan for the system is designed to address many of the concerns we have had in the management of children and adolescents with serious emotional disturbances as community-based care has replaced psychiatric hospitals as the standard of care.
- We are making a massive change in a really complicated system. We can predict a few of the places where it is likely to get messy, like identification, communication, coordination, and appropriate level of service
- The new systems will provide better service, but they will be new. Like a new car, it will take us a while to get used to the configuration of the controls.
- The most important thing we can do in the process is listen to the patients. That will keep us on track.
I took stuff from a lot of different sources- we will see how it goes. (Only cartoon in the talk is given below) Hope to see you at one of them.
