Translated title of the contribution: The Psychiatric Emergency Service in Copenhagen functions as planned

Ane Storch Jakobsen, Lars Martin Nielsen

Abstract

The Psychiatric Emergency Service in Copenhagen is unique as the only psychiatric outgoing service in Denmark with medical doctor expertise. The service has been active since 1997 and is serving 1.28 million inhabitants. The target group of the service are psychiatric patients, who are not able to attend the psychiatric emergency rooms, for example because of severe affect, psychosis or substance abuse. A quantitative and qualitative evaluation of the journals from all 1,653 contacts to the service in 2010 and 2011 clearly shows the efficacy and necessity of such a service.
