Synopsis: Lecture Notes on Psychiatry is a concise book that stresses the clinical approach while also providing the essential background knowledge required for a thorough grounding in evidence-based psychiatry. Although the book is aimed primarily at medical students, anyone wanting a lucid account of the principles of psychiatric practice will find the book a fount of wisdom. It has been written by a team of experienced teachers and thoroughly reviewed by a general practitioner to ensure that the book is relevant to the modern medical curriculum.
The book approaches psychiatry as part of medical practice both within the community and within the hospital setting. A unique chapter on the clinical appraisal of a patient's mental state is followed by clear accounts of the important disorders, their causes and their treatment. It provides a balanced, evidence-based approach, integrating the three essential elements of psychiatry: biology, psychology and sociology.
About the Author: Professor Paul Harrison, FRC Psych, Professor Paul Geddes, FRC Psych, and Dr Michael Sharpe, MRC Psych, are all experienced teachers in psychiatry and psychological medicine. Professors Harrison and Geddes are both based at the Warneford Hospital in Oxford where they teach the psychiatry attachment for medical students at Oxford University, and Dr Sharpe is Reader in Psychological Medicine at the University of Edinburgh.
