Physical Symptoms and Mental Health: Assessment, Evaluation and Management of Common Symptoms

Arlington, VA US
February 26, 2015


 

DCoE Webinar Series (Psychological Health): February 2015
 

Date/Time: February 26, 2015; 1-2:30 p.m. (EST)
 

Common physical symptoms such as pain, fatigue, insomnia and gastrointestinal complaints account for half of all outpatient visits. However, numerous studies reveal that diagnostic test results are often normal and the symptoms remain unexplained. Depression and anxiety often accompany physical symptoms in which case co-management of both physical and psychological conditions is important. Understanding the epidemiology, diagnostic evaluation and clinical management of common physical symptoms can benefit both physical and psychological health.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Recognize when patients with physical symptoms are likely to have psychological distress as well
  • Manage physical symptoms using a generic evidence-based treatment approach
  • Evaluate patients with common physical symptoms, including the use of brief patient-reported measures
