Evidenced-Based Mental Health Care
An introduction to evidence-based mental health care for all mental health professionals - psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses and clinical psychologists.Table of Contents
- An introduction to evidence-based mental health care for all professionals working in that field - very few other books are multi-disciplinary in this way.
- Lays stress on critical appraisal of rating scales and clinical decision rules, which are important in mental health but not dealt with well in existing EBM books.
- Self-testing exercises and answers reinforce learning.
- Useful for postgraduate exams but does not focus entirely on that market.
