Evaluating the Evidence Base of Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry
This chapter draws on the evidence base of consultation-liaison (CL) psychiatry to ask two questions: Is research in CL psychiatry more challenging or more complex than research in general psychiatry? If so, what factors make it more challenging? The focus here is exclusively on research involving adults, although there is a growing evidence base involving children and adolescents. In addition, the chapter addresses mainly intervention studies.
