A comparison of multi-component systems approaches to suicide prevention.
CONCLUSIONS: Although multi-component approaches to suicide prevention share similar components, there are some important differences. Multiple interventions implemented at the same time and tailored to the local community context are likely to be the most effective way of reducing the rate of suicide. There is growing evidence for the effectiveness of multi-component systems approaches to suicide prevention; however, further evaluation is required.

Leadership mindset in mental health.
CONCLUSIONS: Shifts in professional identity occur in the transition from trainee to specialist as early career psychiatrists become increasingly aware of broad systemic factors in clinical care. The concept of a mindset, distinct from a skillset of knowledge and expertise, may be an emergent quality for psychiatrists who are seeking to develop their leadership potential.

Compliance of metabolic monitoring at rehabilitation facilities.
CONCLUSIONS: In current clinical practice, metabolic monitoring is high for residents of rehabilitation facilities in Queensland with serious mental illness. However, many residents do not receive adequate communication regarding their results and, disturbingly, results are not forwarded to their primary healthcare providers. This can result in people not receiving treatment for modifiable factors of metabolic syndrome. PMID: 29087209 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Australasian Psychiatry)

Foundation trainees and changes in career intentions.
CONCLUSIONS: Undertaking a psychiatry placement during the foundation programme continues to increase the likelihood of a positive attitude towards psychiatry as a career. The findings of our study suggest good practice in providing foundation placements in psychiatry includes identifying medical school experience, enjoyment, quality weekly supervision and mindful experiential design of placements.

On being supervised: getting value from a clinical supervisor and making the relationship work when it is not.
CONCLUSIONS: In obtaining value from supervision, the active role of the supervisee in seeking feedback, finding value in criticism and building autonomy is emphasised. Additionally, the importance of exploring what value a supervisor can offer and maintaining realistic expectations is considered. Trainees can benefit from taking an active role in planning and managing their supervision to maximise their learning.

Shared decision making in mental health: the importance for current clinical practice.
CONCLUSIONS: Shared decision making is a central part of the recovery paradigm and is of increasing importance in mental health service delivery. The field needs to better understand the basis on which decisions are reached regarding psychiatric treatments. Discrete choice experiments might be useful to inform the development of tools to assist shared decision making in psychiatry.

Brexpiprazole: a new leaf on the partial dopamine agonist branch.
CONCLUSIONS: Brexpiprazole and aripiprazole are both partial agonists at dopamine D2, and serotonin 5-HT1A and antagonists at serotonin 5-HT2A and noradrenergic α1B receptors. However, the two drugs are significantly different in potencies at various receptors; neurochemical profiles predict that brexpiprazole may be comparable with aripiprazole in its antipsychotic efficacy but may cause less akathisia, extrapyramidal side effects (EPS) and activation. In pivotal trials brexpiprazole demonstrated antipsychotic efficacy in short and long-term studies; it was also found to be an effective adjunct in patients with majo...

'Trust me, I'm a doctor': a qualitative study of the role of paternalism and older people in decision-making when they have lost their capacity.
CONCLUSION: Our findings suggest that the paternalistic model within medical care can be an expectation of some older patients and if taking a paternalistic approach we should not underestimate the trust and power that is imparted to us.

Coping planning: a patient-centred and strengths-focused approach to suicide prevention training.
CONCLUSIONS: Coping planning is a strategy used to support people with acute distress. Its components of 'caring', 'collaborating' and 'connecting' reinforce existing strengths, promote self-efficacy and link people with more intensive supports, as needed. Coping planning overcomes the limitations of existing approaches. It reframes suicide prevention from managing patients disclosing suicidality to ensuring patients have minimally sufficient temporary support to help them cope. This approach has the potential to promote coping self-efficacy and prevent deterioration that leads to suicide. PMID: 28967263 [PubMed - as ...

The objective of the current study was to examine the pathology test utilisation of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) within an Australian inpatient psychiatric setting. METHOD: A retrospective audit of 300 random hospital files of those admitted as inpatients between Nov 2014 and Nov 2015 was undertaken. Data was quantitatively analysed and described. RESULTS: The number of inpatients who had a vitamin D determination during their admission was 37/300 (12.33%). The mean vitamin D level of those tested was 51.63 nmol/l. Of those that were tested, 18/37 (48.6%) were mildly to moderately deficient. There was a statisti...

Psychiatric advance directives in Australian mental-health legislation.
CONCLUSION: The formal recognition of PADs effectively shifts the trajectory of mental-health law towards a stronger recognition of consumer autonomy, albeit to varying degrees across jurisdictions. The most inspiring of these changes may be seen in the ACT Act, where an innovative framing of PAD provisions creates a safe space for clinicians and patients to engage, build therapeutic alliances and develop appropriate frameworks for further change.

The making of mind.
CONCLUSIONS: A restorative and generative kind of relatedness is 'natural', the propensity for it being given to us by our biological heritage. Its first form is a game between babies and caregivers, a 'proto-conversation'. Principles derived from this, and related developmental behaviours, guide a form of therapeutic relatedness consisting of an interactive, to-and-fro 'patterning' of verbal 'pictures', or analogues, of the subject's immediate experience. The analogue is the first form of symbol, the use of which is the hallmark of the human. PMID: 28856916 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Australasian Psychiatry)

Original opinion: the use of Bloom's Taxonomy to teach and assess the skill of the psychiatric formulation during vocational training.
CONCLUSIONS: Bloom's Taxonomy offers a hierarchical, structured approach to clinical reasoning. Use of this method can assist supervisors and trainees to understand better the concepts of and offer a developmental approach to critical reasoning. Application of the Taxonomy, using cognitive 'action words' (verbs) within each of the levels, can promote increasing sophistication in the construction of the psychiatric formulation. Examples of how the Taxonomy can be adapted to design educational resources are suggested in the article. PMID: 28856918 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Australasian Psychiatry)
