Principles of Inpatient Psychiatry is geared to psychiatrists working in inpatient settings: residents, psychiatrists who occasionally provide inpatient care, and psychiatric 'hospitalists' who specialize in the inpatient arena. Inpatient settings contain the sickest psychiatric patients, such as those with a high risk of suicide, agitation requiring emergency management, or treatment-resistant psychosis and depression, all topics discussed in the book. Co-morbid general-medical illness is common, and the book focuses attention, supported by case examples, on medical and neuropsychiatric as well as general-psychiatric evaluation and management.
Chapters address special clinical problems, including first-episode psychosis, substance abuse, eating disorders, and legal issues on the inpatient service. The editors bring expertise to bear on a wide range of treatments, including psychopharmacologic, psychodynamic, and milieu approaches.
Developed by the author to use in her own preparation for standardized psychiatry examinations and honed in her lectures to psychiatry house officers at Harvard, Psychiatry Bullets offers outlines, lists, and tables designed to promote learning and recall. Coverage includes all psychiatric topics found on key standardized examinations. The book is ideally suited for psychiatrists and neurologists preparing for the PRITE, the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology written exams, and various recertification exams.
Part of the National Medical Series (NMS), this book provides a quick review of clinical Psychiatry with USMLE-style (vignette) questions for self-study and assessment. Features include 500 USMLE-style questions in vignette format, a comprehensive exam, and a convenient outline format.
This updated edition will include the latest medications, treatment protocols, evidence-based practice guidelines, and revised diagnostic criteria using DSM-IV-TR. New to this edition will be an expanded focus on geriatric psychiatry and emergency psychiatry, as well as traumatic brain injury.
Completely revised for its Second Edition, this text is geared to residents and fellows training in child and adolescent psychiatry and those preparing for board examinations in both general and child psychiatry. The book covers common neurologic disorders seen in the pediatric population, their presentation, including psychiatric symptoms, and their workup, diagnosis, and treatment. Coverage includes psychiatric comorbidities in pediatric neurologic disorders and psychiatric side effects of medications used to treat pediatric neurologic disorders.
Case presentations demonstrate the diagnostic approach to patients in pediatric neurology and on the interface of pediatric neurology and psychiatry. Practice questions offer excellent review for board certification and recertification examinations. A glossary is also included.
