dc.description.abstractReviews the book, Handbook of Medicine in Psychiatry, edited by Peter Manu, Raymond E. Suarez, and Barbara J. Barnett (see record 2006-02741-000). Psychiatrists often find that their knowledge and skills in physical healthcare have slowly diminished over time but are still needed in practice. The Handbook of Medicine in Psychiatry has been written specifically for psychiatrists and provides evidence-based information on the causes, diagnosis and management of many medical disorders. The American authors tackle the most common medical conditions, which they found in a retrospective case review of over 1000 psychiatric in-patients in the USA who had received a medical assessment. The chapters cover symptoms and signs, such as chest pain and red eye, as well as conditions such as obesity. Each chapter has the same format of clinical presentation, differential diagnosis, risk stratification, assessment and management in the psychiatric unit, and most have an assessment and treatment algorithm. Psychiatrists who are unfamiliar with UK guidelines and standards of medical practice may not wish to rely solely on this book for medical information. In the UK, this book faces strong competition from the Oxford Handbook of Medicine and the Oxford Handbook of General Practice. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)
