Using the CanMEDS domains of Professional and Medical Expert, students will investigate opportunities and barriers to the implementation of collaborative, integrated approaches to care. Students will increase their collaborative skills across consultation liaison and other settings in contributing to both improving the mental health of people with physical illness, and physical health of people with mental illness, taking into account the limitations of these distinctions. Topics covered will include responses to medical illness and trauma, abnormal illness behavior, demoralisation and important endocrine, cardiac and metabolic updates. Students will further develop strategies for maintaining professional standards and importantly, address self-care as mental health professionals.
