Description - Recognition and Treatment of Psychiatric Disorders by Charles B. Nemeroff
Mental health is an important public health issue. With the changing healthcare environment, 60 per cent of patients are identified and receive treatment in the primary care setting. This handbook was developed to offer the busy primary care physician with practical strategies for screening and treating patients who have psychiatric disorders. It covers: the continually growing number of drugs available for treatment of mental disorders; an overview of the epidemiology, pathopsychology, presentation, diagnostic criteria, and screening tests for common psychiatric disorders, mood disorders, insomnia, somatization disorder, substance use disorder, eating disorders, dementia, and schizophrenia; treatment algorithms and other step-by-step approaches to direct the physician who is treating patients with mental disorders including drug dosages, schedules, schedules, routes of administration; basic pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, drug interaction and safety concerns, and practical dosing issues for all classes of drugs used to treat mental disorders; and guidelines for primary care physicians on when to refer patients to psychiatrist colleagues.
