We commend the authors for this and also wish to illuminate further on this topic. As part of a larger quality improvement initiative focused on the acute inpatient psychiatric units, we retrospectively examined the medical records of patients admitted to acute inpatient psychiatric units at St. Paul’s Hospital, an inner-city hospital, in Vancouver, British Columbia, who had been referred to the AMCS. It consisted of certified addiction specialist physicians, interdisciplinary trainees and fellows, a clinical nurse educator, and two social workers, one whom provides dedicated support to psychiatric inpatients.||Funding Details:||European Commission Horizon 2020||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Wolters Kluwer||Journal:||Journal of Addiction Medicine||Volume:||14||Issue:||4||Start page:||352||End page:||353||DOI:||10.1097/adm.0000000000000580||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||ISSN:||1932-0620||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
