Update On Consulatation-Liaison Psychiatry (Psychosomatic Medicine)
Current issues in consultation-liaison psychiatry, which is now labeled psychosomatic medicine as a formal subspecialty by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, are discussed. Psychosomatic medicine continues to manage patients in medical settings that cut across a continuum from primary-care to complex medical and surgical centers. The clinical problems containing a medical-psychiatric interface offer a clinical challenge but also an area for new knowledge and better interventions.
