Over the last 20 years, Examination Notes in Psychiatry has become one of the leading texts for trainee psychiatrists. The 4th edition maintains the core of valuable information that is required by any would-be psychiatrist, but has been completely revised and updated. Assessment and diagnosis form the foundation to each section, but are now enhanced by the inclusion of treatment algorithms and evidence based medicine. Changes to the nomenclature have been made to reflect current practice.

The fully revised reading lists lead the reader to the latest papers and publications, and a glossary of relevant websites will provide even further resources - whether during the revision process, or for the professional requiring a rapid reference between consultations.

The sheer volume of essential information, provided in a structured, focused format, makes Examination Notes in Psychiatry 4e essential reading for trainees, psychiatrists, and mental health professionals alike.


Compared to other pocket books, this one keeps to the essentials yet remains remarkably comprehensive.
