What is a combined consultation?

A combined consultation is when 2 practitioners (often a Doctor and a Psychologist) consult together at the same time, in the same room with the patient. This integrative approach creates a thorough understanding of the individuals health needs and combines the comprehensive knowledge of the two modalities which can yield a safer and better outcome for the patient.
