Overview

In keeping with previous volumes in this series, this latest edited collection addresses emerging legal pressure points in clinical psychiatric practice.

Supported by recent references to case law, case vignettes, and useful assessment tools, this volume offers guidelines to clinicians on such issues as establishing an appropriate standard of disclosure in informed consent, dealing with the problem of dual loyalties, assessing patient suicide risk, and following proper procedure in the event a patient does commit suicide.

American Psychiatric Publishing

Assessing suicide risk; psychiatric hospitalization; dual loyalties in practice; informed consent issues.
