DESCRIZIONE

Schizophrenia is a debilitating and serious medical illness that has a profound effect on the patient’s life, as well as the lives of their immediate family, friends and carers. The symptoms and course of the illness vary considerably between individuals, making diagnosis and subsequent management a complex task for the clinician. Extensive research into the causes of schizophrenia and its treatment outcomes has resulted in a rapid pace of knowledge growth. Consequently, advances in treatment options and management of the condition have been substantial in recent years. This book, jointly written by two experienced researchers and clinicians, aims to bring together all the latest research and current best practice in one easy-reference handbook for the busy clinician. The book is written concisely, with accompanying full-colour illustrations to help explain more difficult concepts. Case studies enable the reader to explore real-life patients and review their care plans with commentary from the authors. Finally, an excellent reference list allows the interested reader to gather further information on specific topics for themselves. The book is full of new information and clinical pearls, written in a condensed, pocket-book format. This new book will be a valuable resource for the clinician and encourage a better understanding and appropriate management of schizophrenia patients.
