Drug prescribing is one of the most important parts of clinical practice. Yet it remains one of the most commonly failed components of undergraduate assessments, and accounts for an uncomfortably high proportion of medical errors. To remedy this, the Prescribing Safety Assessment (PSA) exam has been introduced in the UK. It is compulsory and will set a minimum standard for safe prescribing. Failure will preclude GMC registration. Pass the PSA is written specifically for the exam, with one chapter dedicated to each PSA section. Introduces a simple, memorable and failsafe approach to prescribing (the 'PReSCRIBER' mnemonic) Specifies the universal basic principles of prescribing for all sections. Examines each section's question structure and how to approach it. Questions (structured identically to the exam) conclude each chapter. Covers all scenarios suggested for questioning in the PSA blueprint. Common traps highlighted throughout. Two mock exams.

The Medical Model in Mental Health - An Explanation and Evaluation (Paperback): Ahmed Samei Huda The Medical Model in Mental Health - An Explanation and Evaluation (Paperback)
Ahmed Samei Huda
R910 R861 Discovery Miles 8 610 Save R49 (5%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Many published books that comment on the medical model have been written by doctors, who assume that readers have the same knowledge of medicine, or by those who have attempted to discredit and attack the medical practice. Both types of book have tended to present diagnostic categories in medicine as universally scientifically valid examples of clear-cut diseases easily distinguished from each other and from health; with a fixed prognosis; and with a well-understood aetiology leading to disease-reversing treatments. These are contrasted with psychiatric diagnoses and treatments, which are described as unclear and inadequate in comparison. The Medical Model in Mental Health: An Explanation and Evaluation explores the overlap between the usefulness of diagnostic constructs (which enable prognosis and treatment decisions) and the therapeutic effectiveness of psychiatry compared with general medicine. The book explains the medical model and how it applies in mental health, assuming little knowledge or experience of medicine, and defends psychiatry as a medical practice.

R320 R264 Discovery Miles 2 640 Save R56 (18%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The late Carl Rogers, founder of the humanistic psychology movement, revolutionized psychotherapy with his concept of "client-centered therapy." His influence has spanned decades, but that influence has become so much a part of mainstream psychology that the ingenious nature of his work has almost been forgotten. A new introduction by Peter Kramer sheds light on the significance of Dr. Rogers's work today. New discoveries in the field of psychopharmacology, especially that of the antidepressant Prozac, have spawned a quick-fix drug revolution that has obscured the psychotherapeutic relationship. As the pendulum slowly swings back toward an appreciation of the therapeutic encounter, Dr. Rogers's "client-centered therapy" becomes particularly timely and important.

A practical manual on dealing with physical diseases that commonly affect psychiatric patients. As a psychiatrist, you may be the only medically qualified person caring for your patient. So what do you do when your patient with bipolar disorder also has poorly controlled asthma? Someone taking antipsychotic medication complains of chest pain - what action do you need to take? Your elderly patient with dementia shows signs of respiratory distress following a fall - do you manage this yourself, or arrange a transfer to the emergency department? People with a mental illness or intellectual disability are especially vulnerable to physical illness but may not have easy access to a primary care doctor. All psychiatrists must be able to deal with medical emergencies and minor injuries, interpret basic medical investigations and recognise where and when to get help from a general practitioner or another specialist. Essentials of Physical Health in Psychiatry addresses this need.

This book comprehensively highlights modern emergency radiology diagnosis of the acute abdomen. In traumatic as well as non-traumatic emergencies, the clinical term "acute abdomen" refers to a variety of serious conditions in an often progressive clinical situation that call for an immediate diagnostic and therapeutic intervention. Today, thorough and rapid diagnostic radiological imaging is broadly available and the radiologist has gained a central role in patient handling in many emergency medicine departments. In addition to proficient radiological knowledge, communication and close co-operation among the various specialists involved are essential for successful patient management. Emergency radiologists must not only acquire a full understanding of the imaging modalities and technical requirements, but they should also have appropriate clinical knowledge of the various disorders in order to become valuable contributors to the therapy decision-making process. Emergency Radiology of the Abdomen provides a comprehensive review of the etiology, pathophysiology, and clinical presentation of acute abdominal conditions, both after traumatic events and in the non-traumatic setting. It focuses on imaging features and high-end emergency radiology that are indispensable for a timely management approach. Numerous high-quality images, diagrams, and easy-to-read tables are provided.
