The goal of this program is to improve management practices for patients with behavioral health issues in the emergency department (ED). After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Formulate an action plan for effecting improvement in the management of patients with behavioral issues in the ED.
2. After implementing a plan for improvement, collect data to measure the efficacy of changes made.
3. Utilize a model system for dealing with violent patients in the ED.
4. Apply a multi-faceted approach toward managing agitated patients with behavioral issues.
5. Discuss effects of commonly prescribed antipsychotic drugs on agitated patients in the ED.

Brown, Executive Director, Institute for Behavioral Healthcare Improvement, Castleton, NY, Patricia Lee, MD, Chair, Emergency Medicine, Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, Chicago, IL, and Leslie S.
