Primary Care Psychiatry

This unique, ground-breaking new reference makes clinical psychiatry easily accessible to primary care physicians and related professionals who treat patients with mental problems. Co-authored by primary care physicians and psychiatrists, the book presents clinical wisdom, insights, and trade secrets not usually shared with primary care physicians. Readers will find comprehensive, realistic coverage of conditions actually seen by family physicians, regardless of how these problems are addressed in training or reimbursed by insurance plans. Primary Care Psychiatry also assists readers in making referrals in situations where patients are resistant, or when referral resources are unavailable. Each section begins with a list of differentials to help readers work toward a diagnosis, and then details the best standard and alternative treatment options available. A consistent outline format, highlighted critical content, and user-friendly charts and tables enable readers to quickly access and summarize the information they need. Explicit and detailed physician-patient dialogues (scripts) demonstrate how to put clinical principles into immediate use. Appendices contain extensive, annotated lists of practical patient education materials, self-help books, and more. One appendix also summarizes the immediate effects and relevant side effects of psychiatric drugs. All chapters have been peer-reviewed and edited by primary care physicians, psychiatrists, and physicians-in-training, to ensure accuracy and clinical value.

Integrated Behavioral Health Care

Integrated behavioral health care is a health-care service delivery system in which behavioral health care is coordinated with primary medical care. Unlike older approaches to patient care in which mental health professionals worked separately from medical professionals, integrated care recognizes that many patients present to medical professionals with behavioral problems. For example, diabetics or persons suffering from chronic pain may experience depression. Thus patients often need some combination of both behavioral and medical treatment. Integrated care attempts to overcome the traditional division of care so that a coordinated, multidisciplinary approach is taken to provide more appropriate care for patients. In this comprehensive, step-by-step guide, a team of national experts in integrated behavioral health care discusses the economic, clinical, administrative, and procedural issues involved in designing, implementing, and maintaining a successful integrated care delivery system. Among the specific topics discussed are psychopharmacology; the Biodyne model (focused, intermittent psychotherapy throughout the life cycle); guidelines for the treatment of major depression, panic disorder, substance abuse, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder; disease management groups; treatment adherence; patient access to behavioral health care through the primary care provider; and treating special problems related to the elderly and women's health care. This clearly written, well-organized, and thoroughly researched guidebook will be of great interest to researchers and practitioners in psychology, medicine, nursing, social work, psychiatry, and education.
