Handbook of Consultation and Liaison Psychiatry

JAMA. 2008;299(10):1193-1194. doi:10.1001/jama.299.10.1193

The Handbook of Consultation and Liaison Psychiatry is a remarkably complete and useful desktop book and should be required reading for most clinicians whose practice involves the interface of psychiatric and hospital-based medicine. Drs Leigh and Streltzer, authors or coauthors of 19 of the 29 chapters, have created a text that covers the most significant areas of consultation-liaison psychiatry. Sixteen other authors contribute to several other specialty areas, including clinical outpatient settings, cultural challenges, human immunodeficiency virus, obstetrics, liver failure and transplantation, and renal disease.
