consultation-liaison psychiatry is one of the most interesting fields in psychiatry, a hot spot at the interface of psychological and somatic medicine. To be efficient and successful, the CL-psychiatrist has to be knowledgeable and skillful in operating as an outpost of psychiatry in medical-surgical departments with quite different cultures of medicine than those in psychiatric wards or clinics. He or she has to be prepared to manage difficult team situations, mediating between staff and patients with somato-psychiatric comorbidity, learn to connect quickly to difficult medically ill patients under time constraints, and above all know how to formulate organic differential diagnoses for »abnormal behavior« that has been deemed by medical staff prematurely to be »psychiatric«.
Our course aims at developing these skills for beginners in CL-psychiatry, as well as providing the possibility to discuss and deepen the experience for seasoned ones. Hence, we have put together a program touching upon different areas relevant to our field, such as somatization, drug interactions, psychotherapeutic skills for difficult patients in the general hospital, and many others. Internationally renowned experts from Germany, Italy and Switzerland will be part of the course faculty. In addition, you will have sufficient time to enjoy the city of Berlin, at present one of the most exciting places in Europe. Also you’re invited to show own lectures on a poster for the posterwalk.
This course takes place under the patronage of the European Psychiatric Association (EPA). We have applied for EACCME accreditation.
We hope to see you in Berlin in October 2018!
