Introduction by the column editors: This is the second contribution to our column, which is based on the use of an electronic mailing list (e-list) to generate a collaborative problem-solving process. The process is modeled on a module of the academic curriculum of the Columbia University Public Psychiatry Fellowship (PPF) (ppf.hs.columbia.edu) in which PPF alumni who encounter a management problem at their work site present the problem to current PPF fellows and faculty and lead a discussion aimed at developing solutions. The column uses an e-list to stimulate discussion of selected problems. Readers are invited to submit management problems to Dr. Ranz at firstname.lastname@example.org, who will send them to the PPF e-list and work with Dr. Deakins to help authors summarize discussions in future columns.
