Physical examination in psychiatric practice: Part 2

by Dr Gill Garden

 

Last updated: October 2014

 

In the first module in this series, The physical examination in psychiatric practice: Part 1, we looked at the current practice of physical examination in psychiatry.

 

We gave advice on what to consider, practical requirements and how to make assessments in sometimes difficult circumstances. We also covered the observation and examination of the nervous system.

 

In this module, The physical examination in psychiatric practice: Part 2, the remaining systems and related types of examination will be covered.
