This text is an accessible and clinically practical guide to medicines management in mental health for all student nurses and professionals. Making the topic manageable and understandable at undergraduate nurse level, it also encourages a growing understanding beyond this in professional practice too. A wide range of mental health conditions are covered, along with how medication can be used to manage these conditions, how the drugs work and how they should be given. Exploring the legal aspects and ethical issues around medication management in mental health, it also discusses other concepts such as medicines adherence and the therapeutic alliance. The book uses straight-forward language to help the reader master the key concepts and how to apply them to clinical practice. It features: * Drug calculations and multiple choice questions to help you assess your learning * Key learning points to sum up each chapter * Patient case studies across a range of mental health disorders * References and suggested reading to help take your knowledge and learning further The book places an emphasis on applying underpinning pharmacological principles to clinical practice and is useful to all nurses who work with patients who have a mental health disorder. "A knowledge and understanding of medicines and medication management is a fundamental aspect of the role of the mental health nurse. The author succeeds in her aim of providing of both a basic knowledge of the subject area, and an understanding of how the principles of psychopharmacology and medicines management are applied to clinical practice and the role of the nurse. The book has an excellent structure, each chapter beginning with clear learning objectives, and ending with a summary of key learning points; multiple choice questions, and a case study, where relevant. The text is written in an accessible sty≤ specific chapters, for example, chapter 5 "Anatomy and physiology of the brain", having clear diagrams that facilitate the reader''s ability to understand both basic physiology, and the principles of neurotransmission, etc. The role of the therapeutic alliance is helpfully acknowledged when promoting adherence and concordance, whilst the key medications prescribed for the specified disorders, and the associated psychopharmacology, are clearly described. "I would consider the publication as being essential reading for any undergraduate mental health nurse; the text also being a valuable learning resource in the development of curriculum content." Mark James, Senior Lecturer in Community Mental Health Nursing, University of South Wales, UK "I''m delighted to recommend this new, welcome and accessible resource: an excellent book with much to offer student and registered mental health nurses and nurse educators, in promoting safe and effective practice in medicines management. With an easy to understand style, Deborah Robertson provides a helpful overview of the legal and professional context, a practical introduction to undertaking drug calculations, and considers the complex issues around practical strategies for optimising adherence and patient outcomes. Complementing recommended non-pharmacological interventions for well-known mental health disorders, this book offers a refreshing perspective and special focus upon pharmacological treatment options, clearly explaining the use of specific medications, their main modes of action, effects and side effects, and recommendations for monitoring outcomes. In particular, this book offers the reader a very good grounding in understanding the pathophysiology and pharmacological treatment of mental health disorders, providing materials and highlighting further resources for use when working with the patient or service user, whether providing education, involving them in decision-making about medication taking, or actively monitoring outcomes. Another valuable feature is that the reader is encouraged to consolidate their learning through a series of reflective case studies that focus upon recognising need and treatment planning, and end of chapter multiple choice and numeracy questions." John Butler Senior Lecturer in Mental Health, University of Central Lancashire, UK "This book comprehensively addresses all the major psychotropic drugs a mental health nurse will encounter when undertaking medicines interventions. Each mental health diagnosis is explored and the related prescribed medicines covered in depth. I would recommend this book for use as a core text book in undergraduate studies, registered nurses who want to increase their knowledge base and for non-medical prescribing students as a baseline source to learn about the psychopharmacology of drugs they will prescribe."

Afflicting one in seventy Americans, Sjögren's syndrome is an autoimmune disease that commonly causes dryness of the eyes, mouth, and nose, and that can lead to complications including profound fatigue, depression, and lymphoma. While there is no cure for Sjögren's, much can be done to alleviate the suffering of patients. This extensively revised handbook offers everything you need to know to cope with this disease. The Sjögren's Book, Fourth Edition is a comprehensive and authoritative guide, produced by the Sjögren's Syndrome Foundation and its medical advisors and edited by physician Daniel J. Wallace, a leading authority on autoimmune disorders. This expanded edition provides readers with the best medical and practical information on this disorder, bringing together the current thinking about Sjögren's in an easily readable and understandable book, with an entirely new section on lifestyle issues aimed at improving the quality of life for Sjögren's sufferers. With more than thirty chapters written by leading experts, the handbook illuminates the major clinical aspects of the syndrome and is loaded with practical tips and advice. Indeed, it offers a wide-ranging look at the many faces of Sjögren's, covering diagnosis, the various organ systems that can be affected, the possible psychological problems, and the many treatment options, as well as a concluding chapter listing the web, print, and media resources available. It is a valuable aid that patients can use while discussing their illness with their physician and an excellent resource for family members.

This second edition of Seizures and Epilepsy, written almost a quarter of a century after the ground-breaking first edition, is more than an update: it is a complete revision due to tremendous advances in the field. Our understanding of the fundamental neuronal mechanisms underlying epileptic phenomena, as well as current diagnosis and treatment, have been heavily influenced over the past several decades by seminal neuroscientific developments, particularly the introduction of molecular neurobiology, genetics, and modern neuroimaging. According to the World Health Organization, epilepsy accounts for 1% of the global burden of disease, equivalent to breast cancer in women and lung cancer in men. Among primary disorders of the brain, it is equivalent to depression, dementia, and substance abuse. Singly authored by Jerome Engel, Jr, this must-read from 1989 reasserts itself as a modern classic comprehensive textbook covering a broad range of both basic and clinical epileptology.
