Overview

Psychiatry at a Glance provides a concise and visually-oriented summary of core psychiatric knowledge.

It's aimed primarily at clinical undergraduate medical students undertaking their psychiatry attachment and studying for final examinations. The tables and diagrams encapsulate all a student needs to know in order to pass, while the text supplies the extra detail necessary to do well.

It is equally useful to those training in allied health professions such as nursing, social work, psychology and pharmacy, and to psychiatric trainees. All of these individuals will find it a clear and user-friendly overview of psychiatry.

This edition has been thoroughly updated and a new chapter on psychiatric emergencies has been added. Key references for each chapter are provided, and readers can assess their progress by using the multiple choice questions at the end of the book.

Outline format w/schematics; disc. DSM-IV & ICD-10 codes, etiology, characteristics, prognosis, & more.
