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.
