Overview

Within psychiatry, there is a large and growing interest for formal diagnostic and treatment consensus guidelines. Written by department chairs and senior professors, the very people who co-ordinate the care of those patients who are the most difficult to treat, this textbook focuses on treatment from a psychopharmacological point of view by addressing drug management at all points from the beginning of treatment (for the never before treated) through to attempting to treat previously resistant patients. The unique algorithmic presentation of this book:

  • Directly mirrors how physicians and patients see the process of treatment
  • Provides clear decision pathways for all stages of treatment in psychiatric disorders
  • Makes it obvious where the patient stands in the protocol and, thus, what to do next about medication
This Textbook of Treatment Algorithms in Psychopharmacology presents both algorithms and protocols, making it invaluable for psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses and nurse practitioners, benefit managers and all who care for the mentally ill.
