This allows the ED to be utilized for trauma related emergencies. The article goes on to explain that through training and staffing PEC’s are specialized in handling the medical concerns that accompany psychiatric illnesses such as self-harm and harm to others. The article is quite eye- opening to the harsh reality that ED’s are not equipped to handle the growing need of psychiatric care in communities and that there is a serious lack of research on the topic.
Step 1: Research Analysis Complete the table below Topic of Interest: Psychiatric care in emergency departments (ED) Research Article: Include full citation in APA format, as well as link or search details (such as DOI) Coates, D. (2018). Service models for urgent and emergency psychiatric care: An overview.

Same key words used for literature search Few studies on ED psychiatric care. High services had to be provided within 24 hours to be deemed emergent response
Step 2: Summary of Analysis Craft a summary (2-3 paragraph) below that includes the following: Describe your approach to identifying and analyzing peer-reviewed research Identify at least two strategies that you would use that you found to be effective in finding peer-reviewed research Identify at least one resource you intend to use in the future to find peer-reviewed research For this assignment, I utilized Walden University’s Library services and Thoreau search. I entered the keyword of psychiatric care and emergency services. I also limited the search to full articles only, as well as 2015-2019. I also ensured that the peer-reviewed articles only box was check marked. This populated a search of peer-reviewed articles that addressed psychiatric care in conjunction with emergency departments. In the past I utilized Google Scholar for most of my searches, however it would often bring up articles that required payment for the full article. There was also no way to only search for peer-reviewed articles. I would spend an hour or two just finding an article that could be utilized for an assignment at times. Since utilizing Walden’s Library resources to search for articles I can honestly say that I will no longer recommend Google Scholar to students for their research material. I have even introduced my DON to EBSCO host as she often reads up on new research on geriatric care and long-term nursing facilities.
