Jeugdpsychiaters dissatisfied about the status of your own box

From a ledenpeiling of the Dutch Association for Psychiatry shows that they believe that the quality of child and adolescent psychiatry strongly decreased. That has major consequences for the young patients.

Two-thirds of the 240 children and jeugdpsychiaters – about half of all Dutch people working in this box – kent departments or facilities in the area of child and adolescent psychiatry that have been stopped or are downsized, it is evident from the survey. This is accompanied by a decrease in provision and a narrowing of the range of children and jeugdpsychiaters.

In addition, three-fifths of the participants in the survey to a colleague or self-catering practice that is stopped, or child and adolescent psychiatry has reduced. As the main reasons for this is the administratielast, and the low fees.

Long waiting list

By the many stopped practice are the waiting lists long, and has now become the difficult children clinical to place, by reference, or a crisisplek to arrange. Children are not to time referred to let in specialist care.

A small majority of the members will find a return to health is desired. The other part is that it is necessary to advocate for national agreements.

The NVvP calls the response to the survey “remarkably high”. “This shows how kinderpsychiaters experienced their profession in the core is touched.”

Six weeks

Rather it appeared from a survey from research firm MediQuest that children and young people up to eighteen years with anxiety symptoms, depression, or other mental disorders on average six weeks wait for a first interview. According to the rules it should not be longer than four weeks.
