Reviewer: Steve Paschos, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is an up-to-date, concise, pocket guide to dealing with patients with psychiatric illness.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide clinicians working with patients who have psychiatric illnesses a structured, efficient, quick reference that contains the latest advances, guidelines, and in-depth reviews.
Audience: It is intended for psychiatric clerks, residents, fellows in training, experienced practicing psychiatrists, and health professionals who treat patients with mental/psychiatric illness.
Features: The easy-to-read chapters present evidence-based guidance on management and treatment of psychiatric issues. They cover common psychiatric disorders seen in everyday clinical practice, ranging from mood disorders to anxiety to psychotic disorders and the psychopharmacology involved with each. Easy-to-read bullet points along with key diagnostic criteria and symptom lists efficiently clarify complex psychiatric disorders. There are appropriately placed summary boxes with bullet points to consolidate key topics. Finally, key ICD-l0 and DSM-IV classifications make it possible to discuss illness groupings and diagnoses for coding and documentation.
Assessment: This is a thorough quick, comprehensive, efficient review of the vast, complex field of psychiatry. Using up-to-date, evidence-based research to guide treatment protocols makes this book very good at what it is supposed to do, provide streamlined data to aid a clinician in diagnosing and treating patients.
