Psychogeriatric Liaison: A Service to a District General Hospital

  • R. M. Fraser (a1) and Rosemary Healy (a1)
Extract

Liaison psychiatry has been an influential element in hospital psychiatric practice for over a decade now. It is concerned with the ‘diagnosis, treatment, study, and prevention of psychiatric disorders among patients in non-psychiatric health care institutions, especially in general hospitals’. This paper describes and evaluates a project in which the principles of liaison psychiatry were incorporated into a psychogeriatric service.
