This title is directed primarily towards trainee psychiatrists sitting MRCPsych or similar exams and qualified psychiatrists. It summarizes information on a wide range of topics such as important journal articles, clinical trials, government White Papers, guidelines and rating scales which are vital for both good exam performance and clinical practice, but which are not available elsewhere between one set of covers. Brings together information from disparate sources on the major areas of psychiatry - saves much trawling through journals and other sources. Covers the vital areas for each topic as relevant - summaries of journal articles, clinical trials, government directives, national guidelines. Presents the information in an easily accessible form through the use of bullet points, lists, tables and diagrams. Invaluable for the hard pressed exam candidate revising for the essay paper and clinical sections of Part II of the MRCPsych and similar exams.
