Draft guidelines on psychiatric evaluation were made available for public review in January 2014. The guidelines were revised to address reviewer comments and submitted for approval by the APA Assembly in May.
Since then, the guidelines were further revised to incorporate feedback from the APA Assembly. The revised draft guidelines are now available here for approval by the APA Assembly and Board of Trustees.
For questions about these guidelines or the comment process, contact William E. Narrow, M.D., M.P.H., Acting Director, Office of Quality Improvement and Psychiatric Services, at 703-907-8628.
