Reflections on the days of social dialogue.
The 2016 edition of the Anniversary Symposium focused on the importance of social dialogue in the complex approach to psychiatric penitents, taking into account all assistance dimensions entailed, in order to exploit the entire potential of increase in the quality of life.
Consequently, the Symposium began with a far-reaching discussion on the definition of social dialogue space in psychiatric assistance; this discussion comprised psychiatrists and representatives of public institutions and NGOs, such as the DGASPC [General Directorate for Social Assistance and Child Protection], the Communitarian assistance Directorate, the Police, the Protected Houses and the Caritas Foundation. The main purpose of these discussions was to elaborate means of collaboration between the institutions, for the benefit of psychiatric patients with difficult socio-familial status.
Furthermore, besides the multiple presentations concerning the scientific progresses registered in the field of psychiatric therapeutic field, Workshops were organized on the importance of psychiatric medical protocols in the relationship between inpatient and outpatient services, in the community assistance of mental patients and in the complex and differentiated management of psychiatric cases with severe social implications.
Another fundamental element of the Symposium was represented by the analysis of validation indicators for the standards proposed within the Workshop "Determining the Validation Indicators for Clinical Management standards in the Specialty of Psychiatry," presided by Vasile Cepoi, Secretary of State and President of the National Agency for Health Quality Management.
The dialogue focused on the risks of implementing a system of quality Management, clinical management in the specialty of Psychiatry, medical ethics and patient's rights, healthcare plans for patients with mental conditions and specific aspects related to the funding process. The motivation of this Workshop was that the accreditation process for hospitals is a continuous endeavour, with a dynamic that must respond to specific aspects underscored along the way. Because Psychiatry represents such a field, ANMCS promoted an initiative of determining the new validation indicators for the standards proposed for clinical management in the specialty of Psychiatry, thus ascribing the "Socola" Institute of Psychiatry Iasi the task of elaborating a draft.
All presentations and Workshops included in this edition of Days of the "Socola" Institute of Psychiatry consolidated the idea that it is necessary to be open to dialogue, to communication, to interdisciplinarity, with the ultimate purpose of avoiding to practice keyhole psychiatry and of striving the improve the quality of life for psychiatric patients.
The Symposium is an important scientific event, which we organize annually, in an attempt to share the latest news in psychiatry knowledge, as well as the most recent pragmatic aspects of specialized assistance. This year, the event was dedicated to communication, both between professionals and with partners of social dialogue.
