Training for paediatricians for mental health crisis care: Claire Miller guest post

I often wonder about how much time paediatric trainees spend on learning and rehearsing the steps of all the various APLS algorithms. Indeed,  we are encouraged to do so as the curriculum and assessment process that we go through during our training has a strong focus on physical health. We are then further armed for the frontline with various medical calculator applications on our phones that can ease us through calculations in difficult moments. What can we have in our minds and pockets to help us when children and young people present to a/e with unmet mental health needs? Maybe the attached handouts on mental state examination and risk assessment would be a start. They are assimilated from information contained in a fabulous free resource called MindEd. Have a look and see if it helps….
