The Royal College of Psychiatrists' Guidelines for Training in Liaison Psychiatry (1988) recommend that trainee psychiatrists have the opportunity of working closely with an individual ward or department. Such an attachment may involve the trainee psychiatrist in staff support. This paper describes the involvement of a psychiatric trainee in the development of support structures in a hospice during a liaison attachment. The project not only shed light on the causes of staff strain in palliative care settings, but also provided an opportunity to participate in management.
