Oxford Psychiatry 4th Edition

The Oxford Psychiatry 4th Edition pdf book has been thoroughly revised to reflect developments in the field, and case studies and ‘science boxes’ added to firmly pin theoretical study to clinical practice.

Psychiatry is the branch of medicine that specializes in the treatment of those brain disorders which primarily cause
disturbance of thought, behaviour, and emotion. These are often referred to as mental, or psychiatric, disorders.
The boundary with the specialty of neurology, which also deals with disorders of the central nervous system, is
therefore indistinct. Neurology mainly focuses on brain disease with clear physical pathology and/or obvious
peripheral effects on, for example, motor function.

Psychiatry introduces medicine students to the subject in a concise, innovative and memorable way. Its patient-centred approach blends a discussion of the theoretical basis of different psychiatric disorders with an explanation of the management of these disorders in everyday clinical practice, using genuine case histories to place the content in a realistic context.

Recognizing that having positive interactions with a patient is central to the provision of successful psychiatric care, the book includes guidance on history-taking and assessment, while also reflecting best practice as set out by current clinical guidelines. Oxford Psychiatry 4th Edition provides guide to the students appearing for usmle ,mrcp ,dnb or in residency programme.

Having undergone an extensive revision for this Oxford Psychiatry 4th Edition, and covering all the major psychiatric conditions in a logically-structured way, the book is an invaluable guide to all individuals who are likely to encounter those with psychiatric problems, including students of medicine, healthcare, and social work.
