Health psychologists: Work in both inpatient and outpatient settings, and are consulted to help patients and their doctors better understand both psychological antecedents that exacerbate disease, as well as the psychological effects illness has on the patient, and offers ways to mitigate both in order to improve prognosis, well-being and overall quality of life.
