Overview

Over the last 20 years, Examination Notes in Psychiatry has become one of the leading texts for trainee psychiatrists. The 4th edition maintains the core of valuable information that is required by any would-be psychiatrist, but has been completely revised and updated. Assessment and diagnosis form the foundation to each section, but are now enhanced by the inclusion of treatment algorithms and evidence based medicine. Changes to the nomenclature have been made to reflect current practice.

The fully revised reading lists lead the reader to the latest papers and publications, and a glossary of relevant websites will provide even further resources - whether during the revision process, or for the professional requiring a rapid reference between consultations.

The sheer volume of essential information, provided in a structured, focused format, makes Examination Notes in Psychiatry 4e essential reading for trainees, psychiatrists, and mental health professionals alike.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Pamela Vergara- Rodriguez, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is the fourth edition of a large, pocket sized review that is user friendly and succinct. The previous edition was published in 1995. The new edition adds current references and updates the content with recent material.
Purpose: The book is meant to review basic, key points in a wide range of psychiatric areas in order to provide a quick recall of previously studied material. The purpose is not to provide any in-depth teaching or details, but rather to serve as a comprehensive yet concise review.
Audience: The audience may include any person in the mental health field as the authors mention in the preface; the material is easy to read and understand. Physicians may use this book as a quick memory-aid, whereas a mental health social worker may use this book as a reference. The authors present an all-inclusive understanding of psychiatry.
Features: The book is divided into 27 sections covering a wide range of topics from research methodology to EEG and brain imaging, to community-oriented psychiatry. Each section reviews basic information: definitions, epidemiology, etiology, clinical features and management. Tables and bullets are used appropriately to review key points. Historical figures and concepts are included when appropriate. Each section ends with references and suggested further reading. The authors refer to both the ICD-10 and the DSM-IV, which provides an international comparison of psychiatric constructs. This black-and-white print text is entirely for the quick-read audience and would not be recommended for visual learners.
Assessment: This edition is timely, including issues in evidence-based medicine treatment guidelines and even web sites, all of which are now an integral part of psychiatric practice. Compared to other pocket books, this one keeps to the essentials yet remains remarkably comprehensive. Any mental health practitioner, ranging from social worker to psychiatrist, could benefit from a quick glance or a one-time read through. This type of book is particularly useful in the outpatient setting where time is of utmost value.
