Research SIG

Welcome to the Research SIG!

Chairs: Daniel Shalev, MD and Kathleen Sheehan, MD, DPhil, FRCPC.

To improve clinical care in consultation-liaison psychiatry, we need a high-quality evidence-base. Research at the intersection of mental and physical health is essential for the development of new knowledge in the field. This includes research investigating clinical presentations, treatment and management, service delivery, education, and patient outcomes.

The mission of the Research SIG is to bring together C-L psychiatrists, trainees, and others who are interested in research in consultation-liaison psychiatry.
