A practical guide to understanding the relationship between depression and other illnesses

Depression in Medical Illness is written with two main goals: provide clinicians with information about the importance of understanding and treating depression in the medically ill and to provide them with the practical tools to do so.

Depression in Medical Illness is divided into four sections:

Section 1 delves into our current understanding of the relationship between depression and other illnesses and why it is essential to treat depression in the medically ill.

Section 2 details the principles of diagnosis and treatment of depression in the medically ill and benefits and drawbacks of various types of therapy.

Section 3 (which comprises most of the book) covers depression as it co-occurs in conjunction with the major medical conditions, organized by organ systems.

Section 4 is devoted to special topics that are specific to particular medical illnesses or organ systems, such as depression in the medically ill child and in the elderly, and depression in special populations such as surgical patients. It also covers delivery of depression care, including the latest models of service deliver.

· Includes valuable material on the cross-cultural and ethnic influences on the presentation and treatment of depression in the medically ill

· Each chapter in the section on depression as it co-occurs in conjunction with major medical conditions follows a template that includes epidemiology, genetics and inheritance, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis and differential diagnosis, and those aspects of treatment that are unique to that particular illness
