9780199329311: Psychosomatic Medicine (Pittsburgh Pocket Psychiatry Series)

Psychosomatic Medicine (PM) is a rapidly developing subspecialty of psychiatry focusing on psychiatric care of patients with other medical disorders. PM specialists diagnose and manage psychiatric symptoms in a variety of medical settings, optimize their patients' medical care, and expand understanding regarding the role of psychological factors in health and disease. PM practitioners may function as psychiatric consultants in hospital-based wards, primary providers in med-psych units, or collaborative practitioners integrated with inpatient and outpatient medical teams. PM practitioners strive to stay current with the latest research and practice guidelines in a burgeoning field involving complex interactions and combinations of illnesses. To address these challenges, this book provides practical instruction from PM clinicians, educators and researchers, covering core clinical concepts routinely used in practice.

Psychosomatic Medicine serves as an educational resource covering salient psychosomatic medicine topics for trainees and colleagues in psychiatry and other medical specialties. A history of PM contextualizes the field, and an overview of psychiatric consultation in the general medical setting emphasizes specifics of psychosomatic interviewing, physical examination, and collaboration with primary medical services. The remaining chapters cover the diagnosis and management of conditions commonly encountered by the psychosomatic psychiatrist: assessment and treatment of psychiatric disorders in a medical setting; assessment of decisional capacity; use of psychotropic medication in medically-compromised patients; management of delirium, cognitive and somatoform disorders; psychiatric manifestations of neurologic and other general medical conditions; emergent complications of psychiatric medication and illicit substance use; and special topics pertinent to PM. Finally, future directions in PM are explored in fascinating detail.

About the Author:


Kurt Ackerman, MD, PhD is an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and Fellow of the Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine. He serves as Medical Director of Adult Mood and Anxiety Services, and Behavioral Health IT, at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic of UPMC.

Current interests include development of educational tools, order sets, and clinical pathways for treatment of psychiatric issues in a general medical setting.

Review:


Increasing recognition of the effects of comorbid psychiatric disorders that accompany medical conditions mandates that all physicians including psychiatrists, understand that recognition and management of such coexisting clinical entities is imperative. This convenient volume encompasses such information in a practical yet comprehensive manner. From common symptoms such as anxiety, depression, insomnia and agitation to specific disease entities where psychiatric disorders commonly coexist, the book offers the clinician a guide to effective and evidence based management. Psychosomatic Medicine should be on the desk or in the pocket of all clinicians, whether a seasoned practitioner or a resident.
-Thomas N. Wise, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD

"This is a small and portable handbook packed with the latest information on commonly encountered psychosomatic medicine topics. It summarizes current scientific literature and condenses it down to need-to-know basics. Its standardized format, easy-to-reference tables, and eloquent conciseness make it incredibly easy to use. Clinicians and trainees in psychiatric and medical practice will find this a valuable tool." -- Heather Huang, Doody's
