Descriptions of the exact forms of intervention used, for example in the work of 'crisis intervention services' are often too vague to allow replication, and the characteristics of the patient groups are not well described or defined. In particular, with services such as CMHC emergency services or crisis houses, it is not clear how far the services are targeting the severely mentally ill in their provisions. Clear operational definitions of psychiatric emergencies are also rare. Economic data, showing the cost-effectiveness of different types of service are also found only rarely, and such information is a further important requirement for service planning.
Their descriptions of the centres' services suggest that emergency work is not currently a central element in most CMHCs. Service models in emergency psychiatry One possible way of resolving some of the difficulties of emergency care in a decentralised system is to establish a centralised out-of-hours emergency system, alongside a sectorised system for managing emergencies during office hours. Arrangements of this type operate in Verona and in Trieste (Dell'Acqua & Dezza, 1985), where an eight-bed emergency ward operates at night, with a maximum stay of 24 hours, and with referral back to district centres the following day.
