Ethnicity and Psychopharmacology by Pedro Ruiz
Book DescriptionEthnicity and Psychopharmacology addresses the most relevant theoretical and clinical aspects of ethnopsychopharmacology, with the aim of advancing this growing field well into the twenty-first century. Detailed are the pharmacogenetic, pharmacokinetic, and pharmacodynamic mechanisms involved in differing responses to drug treatment among various ethnic groups living in the United States. Readers will learn an integrative approach in which ethnic and cultural diversity and biological diversity are taken into account and treatment is tailored to specific individual characteristics. Dr. Ruiz's extensive research experience and years of leadership in public psychiatry along with his distinguished panel of contributors combine to make this book an authoritative resource. Psychiatric practitioners, educators, and investigators, as well as other mental health professionals, primary care physicians and medical students, will gain a better understanding of treating patients from different cultures.
