Since its beginnings in 1929, consultation-liaison psychiatry has grown in tandem with the dramatic increase in our scientific knowledge about the relationship between psychological factors and medical illness. Today, nearly 3,000 psychiatrists in the United States work at the forefront of psychiatry's interaction with other medical specialties, devoting at least 25% of their professional time to consultation-liaison psychiatry. Clearly written and designed for ease of use, this Second Edition brings together more than 100 clinical and academic leaders in consultation-liaison. These practitioners share their knowledge, expertise, and research, offering practical guidance based on their firsthand clinical experience in evaluating and treating psychiatric disorders in patients with concomitant medical or surgical illnesses. This textbook, which incorporates many updates since the 1996 first edition, and features two entirely new chapters ("Epidemiology of Psychiatric Disorders in Medically Ill Patients" and "Telepsychiatry"), is structured around the four most clinically relevant consultation-liaison psychiatry criteria. Part I, "General Principles," defines essential clinical skills, including the ability to interpret findings in conjunction with modern technological tests (such as neuroimaging) and communicate recommendations clearly to other medical professionals. Part II, "Psychiatric Disorders in General Hospital Patients," reveals the breadth and depth of required knowledge about psychiatric and medical comorbidity and the psychiatric presentations of medical illnesses. Part III, "Clinical Consultation-Liaison Settings," details the now integral role of theconsultation-liaison psychiatrist in highly specialized areas, such as transplantation. Part IV, "Treatment," covers the vast array of specific treatment modalities, with consideration of physiological and psychological responses of patients to advanced technologies and high-stress medical settings and the interactions and psychotropic effects of medications. This practical compendium is the ideal primary resource for psychiatrists who perform consultation and liaison work, as well as the ideal reference for consultation-liaison fellows, psychiatry residents, physicians and health care professionals in related fields, and medical and mental health professionals interested in neurobehavioral syndromes that occur in medical and surgical patients.
