This book is for prescribers specializing in psychiatry, primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, psychologists and pharmacists. Featuring one hundred and fifty new and updated case-based questions, divided into ten core areas of psychiatry, this collection will help you identify areas in which you need further study. Each question is followed by an explanation of the answer and a list of references. After completing the questions you will be better able to: • diagnose patients presenting with psychiatric symptoms using accepted diagnostic standards and practices • implement evidence-based psychiatric treatment strategies aligned with the patient's recovery goals • integrate recent advances in diagnostic and treatment strategies into clinical practice according to best practice guidelines. This collection has been approved by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology as part of a lifelong learning and self-assessment program and as a component of maintenance of certification. Optional posttests with CME credit are available for a fee (waived for NEI members). For more information, contact the Neuroscience Education Institute.

In The Press

'Each question's answers comes with 'peer answers' which I liked; this gave a sense of how difficult the question should be. Overall it helped me learn more about the basic neuroscience behind psychopharmacology. Each page references up-to date sources including textbooks (mostly Stahl's Essential Psychopharmacology) and journal articles. It refers to current research trends and to up-to date clinical problems such as novel psychoactive substances. The writing style is very good, and the chapter layout works well. I like the size and format. The layout means that the questions are on a right hand page and the answers over the page.' British Medical Association Programme and Award Winners 2017
