This greatly expanded third edition provides a comprehensive overview of clinical psychopharmacology, incorporating the major advances in the field since the previous edition's publication. Renowned experts from psychiatry, pharmacy, and nursing have integrated basic science, psychopharmacology, and clinical practice throughout the book in order to provide a thorough basis for prescribing. It covers all key psychiatric drugs and disorders and includes the latest data on efficacy, safety and tolerability. Adopting a pragmatic approach to drug nomenclature, both Neuroscience-based Nomenclature (NbN) and older generic terminology are included in the text reflecting that clinicians are likely to use both systems. Many chapters refer to current National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines, making this a crucial resource. Edited by leading authorities in the field, Professor Peter M. Haddad and Professor David J. Nutt, Seminars in Clinical Psychopharmacology emphasises evidence-based prescribing with the aim of achieving better clinical outcomes for patients.
A concise and up-to-date text on the mental health of older people, this second edition is fully updated to reflect changes in technology, competency-based training, guidelines, law and treatments.

Together the chapters form an essential text that contributes to the rising standards in old age psychiatry. With practical guidelines on clinical management, this edition also includes new sections on topics such as palliative care and migrant health, all written by a global authorship, considering international perspectives. Targeted at qualified and trainee consultant psychiatrists, this text is also useful to other doctors, medical students and healthcare professionals who work with older people.

Seminars in the Psychiatry of Learning Disabilities, 2nd edition is an informative and readable textbook that provides a comprehensive overview of the field in one volume. It is both a revision and an expansion of the first edition, published in 1997. The field of learning disability has advanced very rapidly, with changes in the climate of caring, diagnostic categories and concepts and our understanding of the diverse causes of learning disability. This second edition contains several new chapters incorporating accounts of the psychological treatment of behavioural problems, consent and capacity, the underlying causes of learning disability and molecular genetics. Existing challenges facing learning disability specialists are also highlighted, including physical health needs, communication between professionals and those with learning disabilities and the organisation of comprehensive health care. Ideal for those in specialist training, or those seeking a more general understanding of learning disabilities. Topics explained in accessible, tutorial-style chapters. Comprehensive coverage of the subject in a single volume.
Seminars in Liaison Psychiatry provides an up-to-date review of this important psychiatric specialty. Packed with practical advice for clinicians carrying out psychiatric assessment and treatment in the general hospital setting, the second edition has been expanded to cover a wide range of common clinical areas at the interface between physical and psychological health. There are new chapters on alcohol and substance misuse in the general hospital, HIV and liaison psychiatry, palliative care, disaster management and psychosexual problems. For liaison psychiatrists involved in developing new services, there are chapters on service development and management, while trainees about to sit the MRCPsych examinations can test themselves using the multiple-choice questions (MCQs) and extended matching items (EMIs) provided. Expert practical advice. Synthesis of current evidence and best practice. Comprehensive coverage of this expanding field. Self-test chapter for trainees.
Significant changes were made to the way psychiatric trainees' skills are assessed for the MRCPsych examinations in 2007. Much teaching, learning and assessment now occurs in the workplace in real clinical situations, with the emphasis being on outcome as reflected by the performance of the doctor. This book outlines the workplace-based assessments (WPBAs) that are required by the current competency-based psychiatry curriculum. It has been updated, taking into account the experience gained since these assessments began. The authors explore the theory and practice of different assessment methods such as case-based discussion, long-case evaluation and directly observed practice, changes in the MRCPsych examinations and multi-source feedback. The second edition includes new chapters on Direct Observation of Non-Clinical Skills (DONCS), educational supervisor reports, the new online portfolio for trainees, workplace-based assessments in psychotherapy and views from trainees themselves. This book is essential reading for psychiatric trainers and trainees.
