Psychische Erkrankung im organischen Kleid: schneller erkennen und behandeln

Klinikkooperation am Universitätsklinikum Bonn will Behandlungsweg bei funktionellen, nicht-epileptischen Anfällen verkürzen

Regelmäßig auftretende Zuckungen mit oder ohne Bewusstseinsverlust? Epilepsie. Wiederkehrende Taubheit in den Gliedmaßen? Verdacht auf Multiple Sklerose. Manchmal sind die naheliegenden Diagnosen nicht die richtigen – denn auch psychische Störungen können körperliche Beschwerden und die beschriebenen Symptome hervorrufen. Um diesem Phänomen zu begegnen und den Patientinnen und Patienten schneller zur richtigen Therapie zu verhelfen, haben die Kliniken für Epileptologie, Psychiatrie und Psychosomatische Medizin am Universitätsklinikum Bonn als erstes Klinikum bundesweit sowohl eine gemeinsame Sprechstunde gegründet als auch einen modellhaften, interdisziplinären Patientenpfad aufgesetzt.

The Department for Epileptology has redesigned the walls with high-quality photographs featuring motifs from Bonn, the Siebengebirge and the Ahr Valley. The large-format photos behind acrylic glass create a positive atmosphere for patients and staff in the corridors, offices and treatment rooms.

Dominik Ketz, born in Bonn in 1974, now lives in Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler again. As a professional outdoor photographer, he travels all over the world. For the new pictures in the Clinic and Polyclinic for Epileptology, he was able to stay close to his family and took pictures for us in Bonn and the surrounding area.
