Consultation Liaison Services bring the diagnostic and treatment capabilities of psychiatry to the bedside of medical and surgical inpatients. Consultation services are provided by a multidisciplinary team that includes psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, psychiatric nurse clinicians, psychiatric social workers and residents in Psychiatry, Neurology, and Internal Medicine.
Commonly addressed clinical problems include cognitive, behavioral, and emotional problems associated with traumatic brain injury, delirium, dementia, seizure, stroke, eating disorders, substance abuse, and related neuropsychiatric symptoms of depression, anxiety, and psychosis that stem from medical illness. Services are provided at the request of medical or surgical attending physicians. Specialized outpatient consultation programs are associated with the Renal Transplant Program, the Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Alzheimer's Disease and Memory Disorders Center.
