Abstract
This article investigates the manner by which a physician adapts his decision on referral to hospital and length of hospital stay to variations in the pressure (access) to hospital beds. An index of adaptation is developed which measures the adaptation to pressure from standard bed-use statistics. An example of the index is given for psychiatric bed use in Canada.

Abstract
Mental health problems among adolescents have become a major public health issue, and it is therefore important to increase knowledge on the contextual determinants of adolescent mental health. One such determinant is the socioeconomic structure of the neighbourhood. The present study has two central objectives, (i) to examine if neighbourhood socioeconomic deprivation is associated to individual variations in utilisation of psychiatric care in a Swedish context, and (ii) to investigate if neighbourhood boundaries are a valid construct for identifying contexts that influence individual variations in psychiatric care utilization. Data were obtained from the Longitudinal Multilevel Analysis in Scania (LOMAS) database. The study population consists of all boys and girls aged 13-18 years (N=18,417), who were living in the city of Malmö, Sweden, in 2005. Multilevel logistic regression analysis was applied to estimate the probability of psychiatric care utilisation. The results from the study indicate that the neighbourhood of residence had little influence on psychiatric care utilisation. Although we initially found a variation between neighbourhoods, this general contextual effect was very small (i.e. 1.6%). The initial conclusive association between the neighbourhood level of disadvantage and psychiatric care utilisation (specific contextual effect) disappeared following adjustment for individual and family level variables. Our results suggest the neighbourhoods in Malmö (at least measured in terms of SAMS-areas), do not provide accurate information for discriminating adolescents utilisation of psychiatric care. The SAMS-areas appears to be an inappropriate construct of the social environment that influences adolescent utilisation of psychiatric care. Therefore, public health interventions should be directed to the whole city rather than to specific neighbourhoods. However, since geographical, social or cultural contexts may be important for our understanding of adolescent mental health further research is needed to identify such contexts.

Abstract
From 18.4.1988 to 17.6.1988, 374 emergency referrals were registered and 495 other referrals to the psychiatric admission department, Frederiksberg Hospital. The two main reasons for the referrals, in both men and women, were alcoholism and/or psychosis. Compared to a similar study from the same period in 1983, the number of emergency referrals was stabilized while the number of other referrals increased by 63%. The majority of the 495 other referrals were chronic psychotic patients and/or addicts who were, as a rule, already under treatment in the day-care hospital or out-patient clinic. Previously, part of this group of patients remained in state mental institutions for long periods. After the change to district psychiatric treatment, the admission department acts as a semi-acute asylum, since suitable resorts outside the psychiatric institution are not available.

Abstract
INTRODUCTION: The aims of this study were to investigate: (1) the prevalence of childhood abuse in women admitted to psychiatric services in a county in the south of Sweden; (2) who the perpetrators were; and (3) the women's self-reported consequences of childhood abuse. METHOD: The study had a cross-sectional design and was a part of a more comprehensive study. An anonymous self-reported questionnaire was used which included both closed and open-ended questions. The data material were analysed by means of descriptive statistics, Mann-Whitney U-test and manifest content analysis. RESULTS: The total number of women who participated in the study was 259, 51% of whom reported experiences of abuse during childhood, with 53% of these having been exposed to more than one type of abuse. The most frequent perpetrator was the woman's parents; mainly the fathers but also the mothers turned out to be frequent perpetrators of abuse. Some 75% of the women reported current psychological problems in adulthood related to abuse in childhood. According to a manifest content analysis, five themes of self-reported psychological problems emerged: psychiatric problems, shortcomings in social relations, poor self-confidence, fears and bad memories.
