Many psychiatrists are unaware of the nature of
health anxiety and its significance to the morbidity and behaviour
of people who suffer from it. This is because most of these
patients are convinced that the answers to their problems are in
the hands of general doctors and so consult them widely.
However, treatments are now available
that all doctors can give, and these are explored in Health anxiety: Part 2 – cognitive-behavioural
This first module shows how health
anxiety is often hidden in practice, how it develops and
is maintained, and how it can be detected, as well as giving some
details of its prevalence.
