Manual of Psychiatric Care for the Medically Ill Book Review:

Manual of Psychiatric Care for the Medically Ill delivers a practical approach to accurate psychiatric diagnosis and treatment in the medical-surgical setting. The editors have updated the literature reviews of their widely used 1996 American Psychiatric Publishing publication A Case Approach to Medical-Psychiatric Practice and have added easy-to-use summaries, Web resources, checklists, flowcharts, and worksheets-all designed to facilitate and teach the process of psychiatric consultation. The appended study guide makes this book even more valuable as an educational tool. Intended as a companion guide to comprehensive textbooks in psychosomatic medicine, this concise volume combines medication updates with "how-to" strategies for the psychiatric treatment of patients with cardiovascular, hepatic, renal, and pulmonary disease; gastrointestinal symptoms; delirium; HIV; hepatitis C; steroid-induced psychiatric syndromes; and organ transplantation. A special feature is the comprehensive chapter on the treatment of psychiatric illness in pregnancy. Each chapter summarizes the literature, emphasizing diagnostic and treatment considerations for patients with psychiatric symptoms and medical illnesses. Representing the work of 24 contributors, this useful, highly informative volume features Checklists, flowcharts, and worksheets that can be photocopied and brought to the patient's bedside for use during the clinical consultation. These templates help focus the information-gathering process, organize the data, and generate important documentation. Standardized assessment instruments and questionnaires, such as the Michigan Alcohol Screening Test, Delirium Rating Scale-Revised-98, and HIV Dementia Scale, which assist in consultation and evaluation. Summaries and charts of differential diagnoses to assist psychiatric consultation to medical patients, including Web addresses to access the latest information on a particular condition or treatment. A study guide in case-question-answer format for selected chapters. This volume also includes a "how-to" chapter on assessing decisional capacity, complete with a worksheet for gathering information and documenting informed consent. It also features practical reviews of psychotherapeutic issues, such as a primer for what to do when patients ask about spiritual issues. Concluding chapters present short, practical guides on addressing general psychological issues occurring in medical patients. This proven manual -- already being used to teach residents the core curriculum in Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry and On-Call Preparedness at Bellevue Hospital in New York City -- will be welcomed by general psychiatrists, consultation-liaison and psychosomatic medicine fellows, residents, and medical students everywhere.

Neurologic Differential Diagnosis Book Review:

"There is an apocryphal story of an eminent neurology professor who was asked to provide a differential diagnosis. He allegedly quipped: "I can't give you a differential diagnosis. If you wish I will give you a list of wrong diagnoses followed by the right diagnosis." Sadly, this sort of arrogance pervaded our field, particularly in the era before there were accurate diagnostic methods and effective treatments of neurological diseases. Fortunately, this sort of pomposity is now relegated to the past and remains only as an antique reminder of a type of hubris that precluded discovery and progress in diseases of the nervous system"--

Breast Cancer Global Quality Care Book Review:

Developing or existing breast cancer centres strive to provide the highest quality care possible within their current financial and personnel resources. Although the basics in diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer are well known, providing, monitoring, and assessing the care offered can be challenging for most sites. Based on the work of the International Congress of Breast Disease Centres, this book provides a comprehensive overview of how to start or improve a breast unit wherever you live. Written by a multidisciplinary team of over 100 experts from 25 countries, it provides a practical guide for how to optimally organise high quality integrated breast cancer care, whilst taking into account the local economics and resources available to different countries. Each component of the care pathway, including imaging, surgery, systemic treatment, nursing, and genetic assessment, is discussed from a theoretical and practical aspect. The authors define targets to strive for, methods to assess care, and key recommendations for how to improve within existing limitations. Finally, the book looks beyond the breast care unit to consider accreditation and certification, emerging technologies, media, and the role of governments. This guide will be valuable for anyone working in the field of integrated breast cancer care, including established breast care experts, those new to the field, and policy makers interested in the social, financial, and political aspects of improving breast care quality.

Psychiatry and the Legacies of Eugenics Book Review:

From 1928 to 1972, the Alberta Sexual Sterilization Act, Canada’s lengthiest eugenic policy, shaped social discourses and medical practice in the province. Sterilization programs—particularly involuntary sterilization programs—were responding both nationally and internationally to social anxieties produced by the perceived connection between mental degeneration and heredity. Psychiatry and the Legacies of Eugenics illustrates how the emerging field of psychiatry and its concerns about inheritable conditions was heavily influenced by eugenic thought and contributed to the longevity of sterilization practices in Western Canada. Using institutional case studies, biographical accounts, and media developments from Western Canada and Europe, contributors trace the impact of eugenics on nursing practices, politics, and social attitudes, while investigating the ways in which eugenics discourses persisted unexpectedly and remained mostly unexamined in psychiatric practice. This volume further extends historical analysis into considerations of contemporary policy and human rights issues through a discussion of disability studies as well as compensation claims for victims of sterilization. In impressive detail, contributors shed new light on the medical and political influences of eugenics on psychiatry at a key moment in the field’s development. With contributions by Ashley Barlow, W. Mikkel Dack, Diana Mansell, Guel A. Russell, Celeste Tuong Vy Sharpe, Henderikus J. Stam, Douglas Wahlsten, Paul J. Weindling, Robert A. Wilson, Gregor Wolbring, and Marc Workman.
