Psychiatry for the modern physician: common psychiatric presentations in general medicine

 

This series of e-modules is aimed at consultant physicians who would like to develop their understanding of common psychiatric presentations that they are likely to see in clinical practice. It may also be of interest to other doctors at a senior level in medicine and potentially in surgery, critical care, obstetrics, etc.

 

Each module provides:

 

  • an overview of the topic and its epidemiology

 

  • information on how to make a diagnosis and the management of the condition

 

  • a final segment examining how services may better meet the needs of patients with this comorbidity.

 

These e-modules have been developed as a joint project between the Royal College of Physicians and the Royal College of Psychiatrists. Each e-module has been approved by the Federation of the Royal College of Physicians for 1 category 1 (external) CPD credit, equivalent to 1 hour of CPD.

 

Series editors: Dr Adrian Flynn, Professor Khalida Ismail and Dr Anne Doherty.
