Liaison Psychiatry Summer School
This five-day course on liaison psychiatry explores this exciting field of mental healthcare working at the frontline of general hospital and community medicine. It uses group work, clinical case discussion, interactive exercises, and a full day of high-fidelity simulation.
The integration of mental with physical healthcare is a high priority in the modern NHS. Whether it’s providing 24-hour crisis care in the emergency department or managing complex cases on the wards, liaison psychiatrists and psychiatric liaison nurses fascinating and challenging clinical scenarios at the intersection of mental and physical medicine.
As well as providing direct clinical care, liaison staff may be involved in complex legal and ethical decision-making, advocating for patients’ holistic care, and co-learning with medical and surgical colleagues. This makes liaison psychiatry one of the most interesting and rewarding fields of mental health.
