Dr. Vera Feuer spent the last 8 years of her career providing psychiatric care in emergency settings. The Division of Emergency Psychiatry at LIJMC was established in 2013 and she was fortunate to serve as the inaugural Associate Director and then Director. A primary site of training for medical students, NP students, psychiatry residents and fellows, our service also provides education and training experience to paramedic students, emergency medicine and pediatric residents. She also participates in educating pediatric nursing, resident, hospitalist and emergency medicine, nursing and social work colleagues. Shifting her focus to the pediatric population in 2015 has allowed her to spearhead the creating of a new and innovative clinical service, the Pediatric Behavioral Health Urgent Care, which has seen rapid growth and serves as a care delivery model that could fill the service gap left by traditional outpatient and acute care services by providing access to immediate care in an ambulatory setting. To better care for the children we serve, another focus has been on building partnerships with various community agencies, including schools, pediatricians and other community behavioral health organizations. This work has been guided by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s ED and UP Learning Community, where our team has been highlighted as a leader and invited to present along IHI Faculty in various national platforms. This quality improvement work also lead to developing formal research projects in the emergency setting and we received a PCORI Grant to study suicidal treatment outcomes in adolescents. Collaborating with colleagues through AACAP I lead the creation and have been co-Chairing the Committee on Child Emergency Psychiatry since 2016. To provide local leadership, Dr. Feuer served as President of the New York Council on Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, the largest regional organization of child and adolescent psychiatrists in the U.S.
