abstract

  • This article reports on a study which reviewed the utilization of six adult psychiatric day hospitals in a Canadian urban region. The study looks at the utilization of services through the examination of clinical service staffing patterns, accessibility, and gaps in service. It is hoped that this comprehensive overview will promote the establishment of standards and guidelines for psychiatric day-hospital services and further enhance the overall planning for psychiatric services in the region.
