Psychiatry:a clinical handbook provides all the essential information required for a successful psychiatry rotation. Written by two recently qualified junior doctors and a consultant psychiatrist, the book offers an exam-centered, reader-friendly style backed up with concise clinical guidance.

The book covers diagnosis and management based upon the ICD-10 Classification and the latest NICE guidelines from the UK. For every psychiatric condition:

  • the diagnostic pathway is provided with suggested phrasing for sensitive questions
  • the relevant clinical features to look out for in the mental state examination are listed
  • a concise definition and basic pathophysiology/aetiology is outlined.

Self-assessment questions are provided at the end of each chapter. A chapter is dedicated to OSCE scenarios to aid practicing with colleagues in preparation for exams. SBA questions with detailed answers written by a Consultant Psychiatrist are also provided.

Printed with an attractive full color design, the book includes mnemonics, clinical photos, diagrams, OSCE tips and key fact boxes. Psychiatry: a clinical handbook is exactly the type of book medical students, junior doctors and psychiatry trainees need to help develop a strong psychiatric understanding.
