Models of Consultation and Liaison

General Principles
  • Richard L. Cohen

Abstract

As indicated in several previous chapters, mental health consultation to childbirth services bears many similarities to conventional consultation and liaison services in a general hospital but with several significant adaptations. In Chapter 1 (Introduction), there is reference to the long history of development of the fields of psychosomatic medicine and consultation and liaison and the manner in which these paths have bifurcated to some degree over recent years. It is important to remember that the basic tenets of consultation and liaison in general medical and surgical hospitals have many applications to the field of obstetrics and childbirth, and it must be assumed that the reader enjoys a working knowledge of this data base.
