Development of a Neuropsychiatry Digital Archive
This project was made possible through a grant from the Victorian Department of Human Services and is being undertaken in collaboration with the Mental Health Library, Royal Melbourne Hospital. We have both retrospective and prospectively collected patient videos illustrating common and rare neuropsychiatric signs and symptoms. The videos have become part of a larger clinical database which includes diagnostic information, brain images, neuropathology images and other investigation results. Through a collaboration with a software provider we have begun to enter the videos data into a "You-Tube" like interface which will allow searching of the video database by key term, sign or symptom. Each video will then be linked to relevant, de-identified, patient information and investigations together with links to on-line relevant literature through the Mental Health library.
