Abstract

The scope and functions of consultation psychiatry in general hospitals are reviewed, and some of the difficulties encountered are pointed out. A consultation service has a vital role in contributing to improved patient care on the medical wards and to the teaching of the nonpsychiatric health professions. The value of these activities is conceptualized from the viewpoints of preventive psychiatry and applied psychosomatic medicine.
