Session 3 (2-Day): Hot Topics in Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry
Psychosomatic Medicine, also referred to as Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry, is the subspecialty of psychiatry dealing with complex comorbid psychiatric and medical illness. It is estimated that over ten million Americans suffer from comorbid medical and psychiatric illnesses at any given time, making the need to evaluate, diagnose, and treat such individuals a significant public health issue. Thought only to have a home on medical and surgical units of general hospitals, psychosomatic medicine is expanding to include various models of collaborative care. Mental health providers will have a key role in developing population-based integrated care models for patients with psychiatric conditions.
This symposium provides an overview of some of the most common and interesting topics in psychosomatic medicine including women’s mental health, somatic symptom disorders, serotonin syndrome, endocrine disorders, and delirium. These topics will be taught in a stimulating and interactive, often case-based manner.
