SANTOS, Nátali Castro Antunes et al. Consultation-liaison psychology: demand and assistance in general hospital. Psicol. estud. [online]. 2011, vol.16, n.2, pp.325-334. ISSN 1413-7372.

The consultation-liaison psychology in general hospitals represents a modality of clinical and a methodological tool used by psychologists in inpatient care, upon the request of other health professionals. The study aimed to characterize the psychological demands of the liaison in a general hospital, from the analysis of attendance records request. One hundred and seven patients were treated between January and June 2010, in which 53% of the participants were male and 57% of adults over 45 years. Most requests were performed by physicians (44%) and nurses (38%), formally (59%), and previous contact between interconsultor and the applicant (85%). The main reasons given for the request liaison were: psychological symptoms related to illness (43%) and identification of impairment in the patient's adaptation to hospitalization (41%). The psychological liaison model adopted was appropriate to the studied context, with engagement of the multidisciplinary team in the effectiveness of practice.
