“It’s all in your head”

Abstract

Introduction

Somatisation is a common presentation in the Australian healthcare system that engenders a significant health and economic burden on patients and health systems. To date, the policy response to somatisation has been fragmented and ineffective. This article outlines how somatisation is managed in Australia, using Victoria as a case study, and considers a comprehensive policy response to it.
