Pediatric patients with chronic medical conditions are more likely to develop emotional, behavioral and psychiatric conditions compared to children without chronic medical conditions. Although many chronically ill children have psychiatric concerns, many patients do not receive the psychiatric care that they need. Lack of access to psychiatric providers, lack of diagnosis, financial concerns and lack of time, contribute to chronically ill pediatric patients not receiving the psychiatric care that they need. The purpose of this presentation is to argue for the addition of psychiatric providers to every pediatric subspecialty clinic. In order to address the pediatric psychiatric provider shortage, the psychiatric provider may provide care in a non-traditional manner, such as on an intermittent basis, possibly monthly or through tele-health. Chronically ill pediatric patients suffering from psychiatric conditions are among the most vulnerable patients and deserve to have care provided in a holistic manner.
