Peer review of prescribing patterns in a CMHC.

Abstract

Monitoring the prescribing patterns of psychiatrists is a challenging and now necessary professional responsibility. The authors describe a peer review and feedback system in a decentralized CMHC, linked to continuing education in psychopharmacology, that made staff psychiatrists familiar with the state of the art and accountable for practice within its guidelines. Data are presented that confirm shifts from polypharmacy toward more appropriate use of psychotropic medications.
