Rapid Psychiatry is the fifth title in the Rapid series of short revision notes books, covering key information in a simple and easily accessible format, using a mnemonic to aid recall. This book provides an excellent revision tool in the run-up to exams, but is also useful for clinical students working on their Psychiatry attachments.
Rapid Psychiatry covers the common psychiatric conditions that students will encounter on the wards, in clinics, in general practice, and in their exams. It acts as a rapid refresher, and is intended to be a concise no-nonsense book covering just the basic relevant facts. The book is divided into sections covering psychiatric history-taking and examination, differential diagnosis, disorders, treatment, the key points of the Mental Health Act, psychiatric emergencies, and a glossary of terms. The disorders will be arranged in A-Z format, and each topic will be covered using the same Rapid series mnemonic that covers Definition, Aetiology, Associations/Risk Factors, Epidemiology, History, Examination, Pathology, Investigations, Management, Complications, Prognosis and Differential Diagnosis.
