June 2023 Committee Report  

The Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Committee is led by chair Dr. Cristina Montalvo (Chief of Consultation-Liaison & Emergency Services, Tufts Medicine) with trainee co-chairs Dr. Katie Crist (psychiatry resident, Boston University Medical Center) and Dr. Elliott Baker (psychiatry resident, Tufts Medicine). After several years of dormancy, the committee resumed quarterly meetings in 2023 with topics including microinduction of Suboxone, Integrated Behavioral Health in Primary Care, and Psychiatry’s role in the Guardianship Process in the Inpatient Setting. We have collaborated with other Massachusetts Psychiatric Society Committees (Psychiatry & Law, Alcoholism and the Addictions) through these quarterly meetings. We look forward to continued collaboration with various committees to host thoughtful and exciting meetings. For the summer and fall of 2023, we plan to host 1-2 more meetings related to “hot topics” in Consultation-Liaison psychiatry including applying to the C-L fellowship, career within the field of C-L, and critical care psychiatry.
