Depressive disorders are more common in the population affected with dermatologic disorders. Comorbidity of depression and dermatologic disorders is around 30%. The correlation between depressive and dermatologic disorders still remains unclear. In psychodermatology three disorders are described: a) psychophysiological disorders (both disorders induced and maintained by stressors), b) secondary psychiatric disorders (mental disorder as a result of skin leasions and treatment) and c) primary psychiatric disorders (skin alterations as a result of mental disorders and treatment)...

Fifty general practitioners (GPs) were surveyed about their attitudes towards psychiatric liaison-consultation services. The questionnaire differentiated among GPs' attitudes towards the liason-consultation model and towards the various possible roles of the psychiatrist who visits the GP's practice. These attitudes were analyzed in relation to the level of post-graduate training of the GPs, and to their psychological sensitivity as measured by the PMI scale. GPs with specialist registration certificates in family medicine were more interested in working together with psychiatrists and rated themselves as more sensitive to psychological issues...

The perspective of the contemporary Consultation-Liason Service (CLS) psychiatrist is increasingly one of consultant to medical and surgical colleagues in models other than inpatient medical and surgical units. Simultaneously, the need for a clinically and educationally robust inpatient CLS persists despite funding pressures. The University of California, Davis Medical Center Department of Psychiatry has made use of creative organizational and financial models to accomplish the inpatient CLS clinical and educational missions in a fiscally responsible manner...

The supervision of residents and the teaching of liason psychiatry to medical students require a special conceptual and practical approach. In our experience the biopsychosocial model not only helps to integrate the biological, psychological and social levels, but also offers an alternative to the physicalist and dichotomizing orientation of biomedicine. Three cases are presented to demonstrate that the biological, psychological and social are interdependent systems, that change in one level produces simultaneous changes in the others, and that the nature of these changes can be therapeutic or iatrogenic, depending on the type of the clinical intervention...

Psychiatrists working in consultation-liason services are often called upon to assess the competency of patients who are under the primary care of other physicians. Despite the frequency with which this sort of problem is encountered, no clinically useful guidelines seem to exist to aid the clinician in making such an assessment. In fact, a number of very different sorts of "tests" for competency to consent to medical care seem to exist and are used in practice. This essay attempts to make some headway in defining a general set of clinically useful criteria for the determination of competency to consent to medical care...

There is a considerable range of mutual interests between the disciplines of family practice and psychiatry. Each field has much to offer and receive from collaborative activities in teaching programs, particularly at the level of residency training. This paper describes the goals, content, methods, and initial experience of a one-month family practice rotation on a psychiatric service with a focus on Emergency and Consultation-Liason Psychiatry.

A full-time liason psychiatrist can work within a department of obstetrics and gynecology. The full-time position described here includes administrative, clinical, teaching and research aspects within a general hospital affiliated with a medical school. The liason role can be established within a department outside psychiatry where medical and psychologic treatment can be rendered to patients simultaneously and the mediating role between psychiatry and medicine is truly a viable phenomenon.

Two new forms, specifically designed for computer processing of data from a contemporary consultation-liaison service, are described. The need for such data and their immediate applicability to problems currently facing this psychiatric subspecialty are discussed. Clinical, administrative, and evaluation uses are reviewed. It is hoped that this work will provide a stimulus to consultation-liason practitioners to use this system or to develop similar systems that will permit documentation, exploration, and enhancement of the consultation-liaison effort...
