Liaison psychiatry services have the potential to improve pateint care and streamline medical services but are underdeveloped in many European health systems. This book follows on from the 1994 publication 'Liaison psychiatry: defining needs and planning services' and is planned as a practical guide to the development of services for a range of specialist settings. These include service in obstetrics, A&E, intensive care, pain clinics and trauma services. In addition there is guidance on the general principles of developing a case of need for services, and working with purchasers or commissioners of health care.
 
The book will be of particular value to clinicians seeking to develop services in these areas, and those seeking evidence on the value of such services.
 
Features:
 
  • Practical guide to estimating needs and planning services for aspects of general hospital psychiatry.
  • Comprehensive assessment of evidence from the existing literature.
  • How best to make a case of needs to purchasers/commissioners of health care.
