The book is organized into four sections. Chapters 1–4 cover general principles of evaluation and management, legal and ethical issues, and psychological reactions to illness. Chapters 5–17 provide discussions on psychiatric symptoms and disorders in the medically ill (delirium, dementia, suicidality, somatization and somatoform disorders, disorders of deception, etc.). Chapters 18–37 are organized by medical specialty (heart disease, lung disease, organ transplantation, pain, etc.). Chapters 38–41 offer a review of psychiatric treatment in the medically ill (psychopharmacology, psychosocial treatments, ECT, and palliative care). The book is organized in the same way as the first edition, which makes for easy use to those of us familiar with the first edition.
