Building on the first edition, Psychiatric Consultations in Long-Term Care has been fully revised and updated, integrating DSM-5 classification throughout. It delivers an essential resource for psychiatrists, neurologists, geriatricians, palliative care physicians, primary care physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants involved in prevention, assessment, diagnosis and management of neuropsychiatric disorders in long-term care (LTC) populations, as well as for nurses, social workers and other professionals involved in important day-to-day care. The book provides comprehensive descriptions of practical, strengths-based, individualized, psychosocial, spiritual and environmental approaches, and high-quality mental healthcare utilizing pharmacological interventions when appropriate to improve the emotional and spiritual well-being of LTC residents. It details key elements in creating genuine person-centered long-term care: the reduction of inappropriate medications and counter-therapeutic staff approaches, treating serious psychiatric disorders with evidence-based interventions, and a road-map for owners and administrators of LTC facilities.
