Drawing on their studies of consultation outcomes, the authors propose ways to improve consultees’ concordance with psychiatric consultants’ recommendations and diagnoses. Specific steps to improve outcome are presented. These include identification of cases at high risk for nonconcordance, attention to the form and substance of the consultation note, and monitoring the consultees’ responses to consultants’ recommendations.
