Abstract

Children with medical illnesses have significant levels of comorbid psychopathology. To understand the concern, and the area that needs to be addressed, the practice of child psychiatric inpatient consultation at Queen Sirikit National Institute of Child Health, Thailand was examined and appraised. Evaluation of the current practice pattern of psychiatric consultation is a crucial process in determining the next step of improving the quality of mental health care for sick children.
