About this book

Integrated Care in Psychiatry: Redefining the Role of Mental Health Professionals in the Medical Setting is a landmark title in the field, offering a clear, detailed, and cohesive call by leading experts for coordinated care for patients with concurrent psychiatric and medical conditions. The renowned editors and authors argue that what is slowly occurring, and greatly needed at a faster pace, is nothing less than a sea change in the way that psychiatric care will be delivered. The current, mostly segregated, medical and psychiatric model of care has led to the development of competing medical and psychiatric subcultures that have resulted in a lack of dialog among health providers, administrators, and payers – and thus in less than optimal patient outcomes. To remedy this problem, the book offers a practical, insightful road map to achieving the central tenet of health reform – truly coordinated, patient-centered care where the care experience for the patient, the medical care itself, and the cost outcomes improve as the system changes from fee-for-service to population-based health. An invaluable reference for all clinicians, policy makers, payers, administrators, and others interested in the debate surrounding healthcare systems, Integrated Care in Psychiatry: Redefining the Role of Mental Health Professionals in the Medical Setting is a major contribution to the literature and a gold standard resource.

Reviews

“I highly recommend this book for its snapshot of current practice and its glimpse of a future that has already begun to arrive in full force. … the benefits to patients, society, and ultimately even to our profession make a strong case in support of our shift to integrated care.” (James M. Ellison, Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, Vol. 77 (2), February, 2016)

“This book exploring the integration of medicine and psychiatry is edited by two persons who are dually trained in these interrelated disciplines. … It is written for psychiatrists to aid in their transition to collaborative care models. … This book will be helpful for behavioral healthcare providers who have an interest in integrating medical and psychiatric care, as well as those who wish to train residents in this area.” (Alyson Myers, Doody’s Book Reviews, October, 2014)
