More concise, practical, and clinically oriented than other available texts, Clinical Manual of Psychosomatic Medicine: A Guide to Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry is designed to aid today’s busy clinicians with bedside and office consultation. This manual presents the distilled wisdom of two highly experienced consultation-liaison psychiatrists and includes many illustrative figures and tables that offer quick, easy access to critical information about how to diagnose and treat psychiatric disorders in medical-surgical patients.
Because the work of consultation-liaison psychiatrists has been proven to reduce mortality, morbidity, length of stay, and hospital costs in general hospital patients and medical-surgical outpatients, their role in ensuring the effective treatment of these patients is more vital than ever.
Essentially an expanded fourth edition of the Concise Guide to Consultation Psychiatry, the eminently practical Clinical Manual of Psychosomatic Medicine will be welcomed by consultation-liaison and general psychiatrists, primary care physicians, consultation-liaison/psychosomatic fellows, psychiatry residents, and medical students. This manual is an outstanding resource for didactics and clinical rotations for those in training or reviewing for board examinations.
