Psychotrauma in the context of liaison psychiatry.

07:00 EST 12th February 2020 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Psychotrauma in the context of liaison psychiatry."

In the context of liaison psychiatry, potentially traumatic somatic situations at the psychic level are frequent. They can be grouped into three broad categories: 1) psychotrauma in connection with a medical event ; 2) traumatic event at the origin of somatic management ; 3) traumatic event prior to somatic management. It is important to know the possible clinical reactions after a traumatic event. In the immediate aftermath of trauma, a clinical assessment is recommended to allow early identification of subjects at risk of developing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions should be considered to prevent or to treat the installation of PTSD with the aim of also improving the somatic prognosis.
