The medical/psychological care in health care centers is indispensable, by forming part of the multidisciplinary team as an adequate complement in any integral care of a patient.
By means of diverse studies performed in distinct countries, 40% of patients admitted to a hospital have some sort of psychic, reactive disorder, as an illness on the basis of, or concomitant with, organic pathology.
Despite this high percentage, little importance is given to psychological-medical care of the patients in many health care centers. This leads to, in many cases, a slower or incorrect evolution of their treatment, because the disorder on an organic basic, masks the psychological disorder, in such a manner that the patient presents a somatic symptom disorder or taking of material body on a pathological basis.
We can encounter acute psychiatric disorders in pre- and postoperative patients or chronic psychological disorders in nephrology, neurological, cardiovascular, or oncological patients that can interfere with a correct diagnosis of their underlying pathology.
The purpose of psychological-medical care of patients in a health care center is:
- To control basic anxieties in the pre-operative patient.
- To offer group and individual psychotherapy for depression and anxiety or stress for those patients who has suffered mutilations caused by vascular strokes.
- To study and evaluate as well as treat possible psychiatric pathologies in the organic illness.
- To perform neuropsychological evaluations for the diagnosis of dementias and cognitive deterioration.
- To treat essentially psychiatric disorders (depression, anxiety crises, eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive and adjustment disorders).
- Pyschometric tests for diagnosis
- Cognitive and behavioral therapies
- Psychotherapy for re-enforcement
- Relaxation techniques
- Group therapy
