Dr. Mgweba-Bewana's area of interest:
As an exciting element of psychiatry, Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry focuses on the care of patients with more than one psychiatric condition. Consultation-liaison psychiatry deals with the comprehension and development of medical science, education, and the provision of healthcare for medically ill patients.
Dealing with mental health disorders that stem from diseases of the nervous system while combining the practices of neurology and psychiatry. Dr. Lihle offers a more innovative approach that targets the real “why” and “how” of a disease and may be able to offer more targeted care to the patient.
This addresses the challenges of ethnic diversity in psychiatric services. By closely observing populations and different ethnic groups found within countries, as well as performing an analysis of psychiatry itself as a cultural product, Dr. Lihle is able to determine whether psychiatric classifications of disorders are appropriate to different cultures or ethnic groups.
