Practical Telepsychiatry

Until the current COVID-19 pandemic, telepsychiatry has been rarely used in routine clinical practice in our country.

In recent years, some hospitals and health centers linked to the National Health Service (SNS) have progressively included the option of Telehealth visits in its offer of services, but without providing professionals with technological means (webcams, microphones) or training. However, the current crisis related to the pandemic has created a new reality that required major changes in the practice of outpatient medical visits in general and mental health visits in particular.

The recently published guidelines of the SNS in Spain advocate that, although the first consultations of new patients should be face-to-face, most of the outpatient activity and continuous monitoring of patients patients will be carried out from now on via telemedicine. Therefore, there is a very significant gap between the current level of experience and familiarity with the practice of telepsychiatry among professionals, and the expected level required by the guides.

From a public health perspective, it is important to prioritize the allocation of public and private funds and resources to expand the implementation of telepsychiatry and its integration in multiple clinical settings, including primary care . Channeling funds in this direction can help improve preparedness and management for similar current and future public health crises, when travel restrictions need to be overcome, to maintain access to treatment when mobility is compromised. The provision of additional resources should be complemented by adequate training of physicians and also by actions to familiarize patients with the use of telepsychiatry.

This SEP initiative aims to fill the educational gap among psychiatric professionals in Spain, reaching more than 80% of its members (1,277 psychiatrists) and providing them with training in telepsychiatry and logistical support.
