The goals of Grand Rounds are

  • To enable discussion that both is about and involves the patient so the physician can better understand the depth of one’s mental illness.
  • Explore the history of certain policies and procedures in place for handling mentally ill patients and what can happen to improve care and treatment that they receive.
  • To better explain and expand on various forms of mental illness and how treatment should be approached and practiced by the clinician.
