Clinical research is often thought of as a dry and somewhat arcane pursuit. Not so, assert the editors of Elements of Clinical Research in Psychiatry. The editors, all actively engaged in clinical research, bring this topic to life by combining a boundless enthusiasm for their chosen field with a depth of knowledge rarely seen in the literature. They show that clinical research can be rewarding not only because the research results contribute to improving the welfare of psychiatric patients, but also because the research process itself is exciting.
The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
