Presents an obituary for Steven (Steve) Walfish, who passed away in Atlanta, Georgia, on April 27, 2016. Walfish was a passionate clinical scholar and educator for independent practitioners. Well respected for his evaluations and consultations (presurgical weight loss, substance abuse, psychiatric issues), he became the go-to person for referrals for evidence-based practice with adults and couples. His untimely death to cancer deeply saddened the innumerable clients whose lives he touched and his diverse professional collaborators...

AIM: To investigate the levels of impulsiveness, and the relationship between the binge eating disorder (BED) and the levels of impulsiveness in obese individuals. METHODS: Two hundred and forty-one obese patients who were included in the study and candidate for bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) were clinically interviewed to identify the BED group, and patients were divided into two groups: Those with BED and those without BED. The comorbidity rate of groups was determined by using structured clinical interview for DSM-IV (SCID-I)...

OBJECTIVES: Previous research on gastrointestinal and other medical conditions has shown the presence of incongruence between self- and clinician-reported functioning and its relation with psychopathology. The main objective of this study was to test whether inconsistencies between clinician- and self-assessed functionality can be used to detect psychopathology among patients diagnosed of motor or functional gastrointestinal disorders. METHODS: One hundred and three patients from a gastroenterology inpatient unit were included in this study...

Infertility treatment doesn't stop in the technical and specific processing. The psychological distress may be very important and a frequent cause of drop-out during the medical procedure. Therefore the couple should be taken into account globally. Different level of counselling sessions should be offered to give the couple complete information about the procedure. The psychological counselling should be tailored to their need in term of coping strategies in the management of the stress or more specific psychotherapeutical approach...

OBJECTIVE: To describe the establishment of Australia's first psychiatric day hospital in Western Australia in April 1959 by Dr Digby Moynagh (1911-1963). METHODS: A range of primary and secondary sources were consulted. RESULTS: Moynagh was able to establish the Graylands Day Hospital because he had an outsider's perspective, and was familiar with the day hospital model from UK psychiatric literature. However, he was opposed by local medical and political interests, which eventually led to his departure from the State...

OBJECTIVE: In this article I reflect on life as a locum psychiatrist in Australia and New Zealand, considering the context, qualities required in a locum and the benefits and challenges of the role. CONCLUSIONS: Australasian psychiatric locums work mostly in rural areas or small towns where it is difficult to recruit and retain consultants or to cover for leave. The qualities appreciated in locums are their presence, the ability to start work quickly, flexibility, therapeutic caution and advocacy...

BACKGROUND: Emotional distress in cancer patients often goes unnoticed in daily routine; therefore distress screening is now recommended in many national guidelines. However, screening alone does not necessarily translate into better well-being. We examined whether stepped psycho-oncological care improves referral to consultation-liaison (CL) services and improves well-being. METHODS: In a cluster-randomised trial, wards were randomly allocated to stepped vs. standard care...

#10
Jeffrey P Spike
Informed consent is the single most important concept for understanding decision-making capacity. There is a steady pull in the clinical world to transform capacity into a technical concept that can be tested objectively, usually by calling for a psychiatric consult. This is a classic example of medicalization. In this article I argue that is a mistake, not just unnecessary but wrong, and explain how to normalize capacity assessment. Returning the locus of capacity assessment to the attending, the primary care doctor, and even to ethics consultation in today's environment will require a substantial effort to undo a strong but illusory impression of capacity assessment...

BACKGROUND: Atopic dermatitis (AD) has been linked with psychiatric disease in adults. However, the exact relationship and its consequences have been insufficiently studied. Our aim in this study was to assess the association between depression, anxiety and AD in adults, and examine the risk of hospitalization and suicide. METHODS: We utilized questionnaire data from a large general population study with data on social habits and psychiatric symptoms to compare prevalences of depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, and anxiety attacks, in adults with and without a history of AD...

BACKGROUND: Delusional parasitosis is infrequently seen in hospital-based consultation-liaison psychiatry. AIMS: Although there are many publications on delusional parasitosis, this report reviews a unique case that was diagnosed during a hospital admission and treated over the next 36 months. METHOD: Case report and literature review. RESULTS: This case report describes a 65-year-old man who was diagnosed with delusional parasitosis during a hospital admission for congestive heart failure and acute kidney injury...

To provide an adequate lifelong urological care in the complex period of adolescence, a transition consultation conducted by a paediatric surgeon and an urologist was developed in our institution. As a real rite of passage, it allows the follow-up and the adapted care of urological conditions, sometimes complex, and permits the transition between childhood and the world of grown-ups. We reported our experience at the Children Hospital of our institution (paediatric surgery and urology departments). During a 6 months period (January-July 2015), forty-five young adults with a mean age of 17...

Correctional systems, already struggling to meet the basic and functional requirements of older prisoners, will be further challenged by the increasing medical and psychiatric needs of this population. Mental health and general medical care for older adults requires specific on-site or consultation expertise in geriatric medicine and psychiatry, as well as potential changes in infrastructure, both of which may be prohibitively expensive. However, compassionate and effective treatment of older prisoners requires that prison and legal systems facilitate this expert care...

Importance: Somatization is a condition in which psychological distress is manifested by medically unexplained symptoms, and it is prevalent in all medical specialties, including otolaryngology. Recognition of somatization can be difficult, and there are limited methods available. Objectives: To determine whether patients with somatization respond differently to the review of systems (ROS) portion of the patient interview and whether the ROS can be used to identify patients with somatization...

Mental health conditions are common, disabling, potentially life-threatening, and costly; however, they are mostly treatable with early detection and intervention. Unfortunately, mental healthcare is in significantly short supply both nationally and locally, and particularly in small, rural, and relatively isolated communities. This article provides physicians and other health practitioners with a primer on the basic rationale and principles of integrating behavioral healthcare - particularly psychiatric specialty care - in primary care settings, including effective use of teleconferencing...

REVIEW
Yelizaveta Sher, Paula Zimbrean
Transplant patients face challenging medical journeys, with many detours to the intensive care unit. Before and after transplantation, they have significant psychological and cognitive comorbidities, which decrease their quality of life and potentially compromise their medical outcomes. Critical care staff are essential in these journeys. Being cognizant of relevant psychosocial and mental health aspects of transplant patients' experiences can help critical care personnel take comprehensive care of these patients...

REVIEW
Emily G Holmes, Jordan A Holmes, Eliza M Park
BACKGROUND: In recent decades, psychiatrists have become increasingly involved in the care of patients with cancer. Psychiatrists are often less familiar with the field of radiation oncology than with other medical specialties. OBJECTIVE: Therefore, it is beneficial for consulting psychiatrists to be familiar with the basic principles of radiation therapy (RT) and its potential neuropsychiatric sequelae. METHODS: We performed a PubMed search to identify articles describing neuropsychiatric symptoms resulting from RT, including anxiety, claustrophobia, posttraumatic stress disorder, and neurocognitive impairment...

BACKGROUND: Psychosocial and ethical variables influence physicians in requesting decision-making capacity (DMC) evaluations. Previous authors have classified certain DMC evaluation requests as "unwarranted" when there is no explicit suspicion or evidence that the patient might lack DMC. OBJECTIVE: To explore psychosocial and ethical reasons motivating both "warranted" and "unwarranted" DMC evaluation requests by physicians in the medical setting. METHODS: A retrospective electronic health record review was approved by the institutional review board...
