Senior registrar training in home treatment

  • Marcellino Smyth (a1) and Pat Bracken (a1)
Abstract

We offer an account of training experience within an inner city service dedicated to home treatment as an alternative to hospital admission for acute psychiatric illness. The Ladywood service in Birmingham is described and the challenges and opportunities for trainees outlined. A dominantly institutional based training seemed to us deficient, after this exposure. We regarded home treatment very positively and felt that it enriched our professional development in both clinical and conceptual terms.
