Professor John Wattis and Professor Steven Curran, of the University of Huddersfield, have published the latest edition of this key text on psychiatric conditions in old age.
Multi-disciplinary in its approach, this book details key psychiatric conditions, their assessment and management in line with modern developments, including the latest developments in healthcare policy. It has been thoroughly revised to incorporate the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) Guidance.
Case studies are used throughout to aid comprehension and illustrate the realities of working in this area.
Now in its Fifth Edition, Practical Psychiatry of Old Age is ideal as a clinical primer for those in training, or as a day-to-day reference for healthcare professionals working with older people.
