Canadian Consensus Guidelines for the Treatment of Seasonal Affective Disorder is the first comprehensive clinical guide for the diagnosis and treatment of seasonal affective disorder (SAD), a type of clinical depression that affects between 2% and 3% of the Canadian population. Drs. Raymond W. Lam and Anthony J. Levitt, leading clinician-researchers in SAD, organized a Canadian Consensus Group to develop consensus guidelines for the treatment of SAD. Using a rigorous consensus process, the members of this group reviewed the world scientific literature and formulated evidence-based recommendations for the diagnosis and treatment of SAD. Draft guidelines were extensively discussed, reviewed by international experts in the field, and then ratified by the Canadian Consensus Group. This book is the final result.
The consensus guidelines are organized into four major sections: Diagnosis, Epidemiology, and Pathophysiology Light Treatment Medication Treatment Management Issues
The question-and-answer format of the guidelines makes them readily accessible to busy clinicians. Summary tables of recommendations and conclusions allow rapid access to the most important information. A rating of level of scientific evidence is included after every recommendation so that areas of controversy or limited data are highlighted. A full bibliography of over 650 references, updated to June 1, 1999, is also included as a resource for researchers.
These guidelines will be clinically useful to family doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, and other health professionals who treat depression and SAD. Researchers and students will find the concise reviews of the literature highly informative. Knowledgeable consumers and family members will also discover practical information and answers to many of their questions about SAD.About the Author:
