This new handbook in the Practical Guides in Psychiatry series is designed for residents and clinicians who treat psychiatric disorders in medical and surgical patients. Replete with case examples, algorithms, "pearls," and tables, the book steers the reader through the evaluation and management of cognitive disorders, psychological symptoms, and substance abuse in the medical-surgical setting. Its emphasis is on adapting therapeutic recommendations to the patient's medical management program and understanding how psychiatric drugs interact with the patient's other medications. Coverage includes the psychiatric consultation report; pain management; forensic issues; death, dying, and bereavement; and issues particular to specific medical-surgical diseases.
