Referrals for panic disorder to a clinical psycho-pharmacology research unit

  • Luiz Dratcu (a1) and Alyson Bond (a1)
Extract

Clinical research attempts to find out the best way to treat patients and audit attempts to make sure that patients are treated in the best possible way. The two are thus inextricably linked and should benefit from each other (Smith, 1992). In running a clinical research unit in which the personnel involved (two psychiatrists and two psychologists) have only honorary contracts, it is sometimes difficult to match the service offered to the clinical population required. A constant flow of patients does not mean a constant flow of those prepared or suitable to participate in research projects. Unlike clinical referrals, which are received passively, referrals of patients for research have to be looked for, even when treatment is on offer.
