This pocket guide is a must for all clinical medical students and junior doctors and provides an excellent revision tool in the run-up to exams. It is also perfect for when working on the psychiatric attachment, as it covers many of the conditions encountered on the wards, in clinics, and in general practice. Now thoroughly updated, it includes new sections on Neuropsychiatry, the Psychiatry of Learning Disability, Forensic Psychiatry, and Psychotherapy, as well as common disorders, their assessment and their treatment. Featuring the key points of the Mental Health Act, along with a glossary of terms, Rapid Psychiatry is the ideal refresher, covering just the basic relevant facts.
