Overview

This fully updated third edition of Psychiatry in Medical Practice takes into account major changes in medical education since 1994. New sections provide information on problem-based learning and observed structured clinical examinations.

Divided into four sections, this book covers:

  • clinical approaches to the patient
  • syndromes of disorder
  • disorders related to stages of the life cycle
  • services, ethics and the law.

As well as retaining the key features of the previous editions, this book includes two brand new chapters on risk assessment and the Mental Health Service. A handy portable reference card is also included; this has been updated to incorporate a scale for assessing cerebral impairment in the elderly, and a new assessment of suicidal risk scale.

This highly practical book is an essential guide for all medical students and doctors in training who are involved with psychiatry. It is also a useful reference tool for those who are more experienced in the field.
