PSYCKES Emergency Room Implementation Initiative
Developing an Implementation Plan

The Psychiatric Services and Clinical Knowledge Enhancement System (PSYCKES) team has developed several resources to assist Emergency Departments in assembling a team and developing an implementation plan:

Implementation Milestones Document

The Implementation Milestones Document  (82kb) | Implementation Milestones Document – Editable (66kb)  lays out the major milestones and associated tasks for a successful implementation.  It has space to enter names of responsible parties and time frames.  Completing the Milestones Document can serve as the PSYCKES Implementation Plan.  For maximum flexibility, the document is available in editable format.

"Going Live"

"Going Live" (28kb) defines the term and describes best practices for successfully "going live" with PSYCKES in your Emergency Department.

Sustaining PSYCKES Use

Planning to Sustain PSYCKES Use (44kb) is a guide to achieving implementation milestone #9, developing a plan for sustaining practices.
