This practice guideline seeks to provide guidance to psychiatrists who regularly evaluate and manage patients with medical illnesses.
The guideline is intended to delineate the knowledge base, professional expertise, and integrated clinical approach necessary to effectively manage this complex and diverse patient population.
This guideline was drafted by a work group consisting of psychiatrists with clinical and research expertise in the field, who undertook a comprehensive review of the literature.
The guideline was reviewed by the executive council of the Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine and revised prior to final approval.
Some of the topics discussed include qualifications of C-L consultants, patient assessment, psychiatric interventions (e.g., psychotherapy, pharmacotherapy), medicolegal issues, and child and adolescent consultations.
