Collaborative PIT Assessments Webinar
We will describe how pit assessments work and how to maximize their effectiveness. A pit assessment is an innovative 30-minute collaborative assessment with a patient, general practitioner, and psychiatrist when a full psychiatric consult is not indicated. As a result of implementing pit assessments, average wait times to see a psychiatrist fell from 43 days in 2013 to only 10 days for a pit assessment and 15 days for a full consultation in 2016.
