Consultation-liaison psychiatry has evolved rapidly in the last decade, with significant expansion of services across the UK. Now in it’s third edition, Seminars in Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry provides a current, comprehensive, practically orientated guide that covers clinical topics, education, service development, audit and research. New and updated chapter topics cover the presentation, diagnosis, and management of common conditions, and chapters on organisational topics provide insights into developing and managing the context within which practice takes place. Each chapter is informed by the latest research while remaining hands-on in its focus, structured around common clinical scenarios that liaison staff encounter in hospital settings. A practical guide, this book is packed with essential reading for clinicians working at the interface between mental and physical healthcare.

  • Updated third edition, with additional topical and relevant information
  • Practically orientated, providing guidance for common clinical scenarios
  • Unique focus on clinical practice and service development
  • A key resource for core and specialist trainees in psychiatry, supporting both their preparation for MRCPsych exams and their ongoing clinical training
