As part of the Department Seminar Series | Michaelmas Term 2022, Professor Michael Sharpe, University of Oxford provides a lecture on Can Psychiatry Make Medicine Better?, chaired by Professor Belinda Lennox. Medicine struggles to care effectively for patients with certain types of problems. These include physical symptoms unexplained by disease, depression in the medically ill and complex multimorbidity in the elderly. Does adding bespoke psychiatric interventions help? In this talk I will share some highlights from many years researching this question and discuss what we have learned and what challenges remain. This is an in-person lecture, hosted in the Seminar Room.
