This volume is the third in a series of succinct, analytical reviews of advances in the psychiatric care of medically ill patients. Like the previous volumes, Medical-Psychiatric Practice, Volume 3 is designed to continually update the busy clinician on research and practical developments in medical psychiatry.
Under the guidance of an eminent editorial advisory board, this volume addresses several specific clinical problems that require an integrated medical-psychiatric approach to their diagnosis and treatment. It includes an in-depth discussion of psychopharmacokinetics as well as an update on psychopharmacology in medically ill patients.
