PsyConsult for Inpatient Medicine & Primary Care Designed specifically for inpatient medicine, family practice, and primary care providers, PsyConsult is a practical, straight-forward educational resource on consultative psychiatry.
Organized around the psychiatric diagnoses and management dilemmas commonly encountered by primary care providers, PsyConsult features concise, clinically-oriented discussions and custom-designed infographics summarizing key information.
An emphasis is placed on medical etiologies of psychiatric symptoms, psychopharmacology specifically as it pertains to the medically ill patient.
Topics covered in this release include differential diagnosis of inpatient symptoms of depression and anxiety, psychotic symptoms, and somatic symptom disorders, as well as inpatient management of agitation, insomnia, and delirium. Overviews as relevant to medically ill patients are provided for each class of psychiatric medications, including a special section on benzodiazepine alternatives, and a section on non-psychiatric medications that can cause psychiatric symptoms. A unique, in-detail walk-through on capacity determination is featured as well.
