Titles in the Pocket Tutor series give practical guidance on subjects that medical students and foundation doctors need help with `on the go', at a highly-affordable price that puts them within reach of those rotating through modular courses or working on attachment.
Topics reflect information needs stemming from today's integrated undergraduate and foundation courses:
Investigation options (e.g. ECG, imaging)
Clinical and patient-orientated skills (e.g. examinations, history-taking)
The highly-structured, bite-size content helps novices combat the `fear factor' associated with day-to-day clinical training, and provides a detailed resource that students and junior doctors can carry in their pocket.
Logical, sequential content: an introduction to the clinical essentials of psychiatric practice, then chapters devoted to common groups of disorders and clinical issues, e.g. mood disorders, anxiety disorders, child and adolescent psychiatry
Fully updated to reflect the new DSM V
Additional content on old age psychiatry and social care. New chapter on mental health services and legislation
