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.

"This is an outstanding revision of the excellent text which has successfully supported many medical students through their training, and into their subsequent clinical careers. Whether the student plans to go into general practice, study psychiatry or become a medical or surgical specialist, this book provides an essential grounding in psychiatry in medical practice." - Professor Rachel Jenkins, Director of WHO Collaborating Centre, Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College London, and Director of International affairs, Royal College of Psychiatrists, London, UK
"Overall this is an up-to-date, accesible and well-referenced textbook, the sort of straightforward resource that GP's and physicians should have at hand, as a quick update or refresher on what psychiatry is about." - Trevor Turner, British Journal of Hospital Medicine, Vol. 70, No. 2, Feb 2009
