Two titles from the bestselling Oxford Medical Handbooks series are now available in this great value pack. Fully revised and updated for the third edition, the Oxford Handbook of Psychiatry provides the most up-to-date information clinically relevant to the doctor on the ground. Using a presentation-based format it provides detailed advice on clinical decision making after diagnosis. This handbook is an indispensable companion for any professional working in psychiatric medicine. Covering all major psychiatric conditions and sub-specialties, this handbook provides practical and comprehensive guidelines and in-depth coverage of psychiatric assessment, psychopathology, evidence-based practice, therapeutic issues, and transcultural psychiatry. Fully up-to-date with the latest revisions of the DSM-IV and the ICD10, it is indexed alphabetically by classification codes and acute presentations for quick access. It reflects the recent major changes to psychiatric training and examination as well as the latest drug information. Reviewed by experienced clinicians, and revised by Specialist Trainees, this handbook not only gives expert advice for psychiatry professionals, but is also directly relevant to trainees in psychiatry. For the third edition, new information includes guidance on Adult ADHD, information on new drugs of abuse (e,g, GBL, GHB, mephodrone), and clinical decision-making in the prison setting. With such broad coverage and depth of guidance, this is the must-have pocket guide for all professionals and trainees working in psychiatry. Fully updated for this second edition, the Oxford Handbook of Neurology is the definitive guide for all those working in neurology and neurosurgery. This practical and concise quick-reference resource includes a wealth of information and invaluable clinical guidance to ensure all readers stay up-to-date in this fast-moving specialty. Now including brand new chapters on neurological emergencies and neurology within other medical specialties, this handbook includes the most cutting-edge management and treatment options, drugs, and neurosurgical techniques. Covering the entire breadth of neurology with additional sections on neuroanatomy, neurosurgery, neuroradiology and neurophysiology, it includes common presentations and disorders as well as information on neurological assessment. Packed full of illustrations to ensure ease-of reference, and valuable clinical advice from experts in the field, the reader can be sure they will always have all the information they need at their fingertips.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review from previous edition Review from previous edition 'an excellent summary and guide to neurology, which is both aimed at symptomatic presentation, and disease-based. The book is excellently written, packed with wise clinical points and covers a wide differential diagnostic base...I would recommend it to senior and junior colleages.' * British Journal of Hospital Medicine *
'This book will rightly become a staple for those in speciality neuroscience posts, whilst serving clinical medical students and those in their early postgraduate employment equally well. There is just the right level of information to grasp the fundamentals of any disease entity new to the reader, and to refresh those inevitable lacunes in the ever-expanding knowledge base. For those at Consultant level this book will still remain a ready and useful source of information in the clinic.' * Dr Martin R Turner, John Radcliffe Hospital *
'As a medical student, I found this book extremely useful throughout my neurology block. Fits into my bag easily, so can just open and read it on the bus. Someone who is a expert in the area may (though I don't know) find fault, but at my level it gives me what I need at the moment.' * Amazon Customer Reviews *
'This book is a solid contender in a sea of similar handbooks, and readers will find that its periodic British nomenclature does not compromise its applicability to American Psychiatry... ...the Oxford Handbook of Psychiatry offers a more impressive breadth of evidence-based material and will undoubtedly be a resource found in the pockets of many practitioners.' * Portable Psychiatry: Praise and Aspirations for the Oxford Handbook, American Psychological Association, by Michelle Braun *
'Enjoyable, concise, relevant, accesible information, clear, logical, essential reading for anyone in mental health, highly recommended!' * Reader review, Philip Cowin *
