Abstract

SCHMITT, Ricardo  and  GOMES, Roberta Horn. Aspects of consultation-liaison psychiatry at trauma hospitals. Rev. psiquiatr. Rio Gd. Sul [online]. 2005, vol.27, n.1, pp.71-81. ISSN 0101-8108.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-81082005000100009.

The objective of this paper is to describe the main aspects of consultation-liaison psychiatry at a trauma hospital. The characteristics of consultation-liaison psychiatry in general hospitals are discussed. After that, the unique characteristics of consultation-liasion psychiatry at trauma hospitals are presented. The most common psychiatric trauma-related events are violent suicide attempts, substance abuse and psychological reaction to trauma. The main focus is on the specificity of the relationship between trauma and psychiatric disorders: they can be both a consequence and a cause. This is a new field for interdisciplinary action and scientific research in Psychiatry.

Keywords : Consultation-liaison; trauma; hospital; psychiatry.
