The Behavioral Health ICU: One Year Update and Program Review
The new calendar year kicks off with a Clinical Grand Rounds focusing on Behavioral Health Intensive Care featuring presentations by Hunter Gibbs, MD, Jamie Tew, MD, and Priyanka Amin, MD. Dr. Gibbs serves as Medical Director of the Behavioral Health Intensive Care Unit at UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital. Dr. Tew serves as the Associate Chief of Clinical Services for Inpatient Services. Dr. Amin is a PGY-4 in the Adult Psychiatry Residency Training Program and serves as the Chief Resident for the Resident Well-Being Initiative at UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital.
UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital opened its Behavioral Health Intensive Care Unit (BHICU) in November 2017 to provide expert care and intensive psychiatric medication management for patients with high clinical acuity. It provides a safe, therapeutic environment that allows patients with severe mental illness, such as mania and psychosis related to schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, to progress toward recovery without jeopardizing the support and safety of other patients. Our speakers will discuss the impact the unit has had on clinical care.
Location. UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital Auditorium
