It is a matter of great pleasure to know that The Indian Psychiatric Society is bringing out a very important book of clinical practice guidelines on Emergency Psychiatry.
Emergency Psychiatry is a very important area of clinical psychiatry. Over the last few decades, many new concerns and issues have evolved in this area across the globe. In view of these new developments, this new guideline is carried out. This clinical practice guideline is important because a wide range of stakeholders in the country consult the IPS clinical practice guidelines as the gold standard and these are looked upon by many developing countries too.
The effort given by the members of the IPS CPG Task Force to complete the work within the stipulated time needs appreciation. Indian Psychiatric Society is happy in bring out the latest developments in the field of emergency psychiatry and I am sure this CPG will be very useful to experienced clinicians, young post-graduates, and serious researchers.
I sincerely thank and congratulate the IPS CPG Task Force team led by Dr. Shiv Gautam, in addition to all authors on this well-accomplished task. I also thank President Dr. NN Raju, and the Executive Council Members of IPS who all put forward their hands to bringing out this very important CPG book. Special thanks to our Editor Dr. OP Singh for publishing in the supplement copy of the Indian Journal of Psychiatry. I wish that IPS should come up with more such clinical practice guidelines in the future, continuing this healthy and helpful tradition.
Long live IPS!
