Collaborative Medicine Case Studies : Evidence in Practice Hardback
Edited by Rodger Kessler, Dale Stafford
This timely and important work looks at the collaborative health care model for the delivery of mental health care in a primary care setting.
This has become the ideal model for the treatment of comorbid medical and psychiatric or psychological disorders.
There is also an increased awareness that pharmacological intervention, the most frequently delivered intervention for psychological disorders, is often of limited effectiveness without concurrent specific psychological intervention.
The book includes more than two dozen case studies, co-written by clinical psychologists and primary care physicians.
It is essential reading for any psychology practitioner in a clinical setting, as well as for health care administrators.
