Churchill's In Clinical Practice Series: Schizophrenia


Schizophrenia is a debilitating and serious medical illness that has a profound effect on the patient's life, as well as the lives of their immediate family, friends and carers. This book, jointly written by two experienced researchers and clinicians, aims to bring together all the latest research and current best practice in one easy-reference handbook for the busy clinician. The concise narative with accompanying full-color illustrations help explain more difficult concepts. Case studies enable the reader to explore real-life patients and review their care plans with commentary from the authors. Finally, an excellent reference list allows the interested reader to gather further information on specific topics for themselves. The book is full of new information and clinical pearls, written in a condensed, pocket-book format.
