Summary and Info
The 100 Cases series books are a popular learning and revision tool that work by guiding the reader through each clinical case in a highly structured manner. Each scenario provides details of the patient's medical history and the key findings of a clinical examination, together with initial investigation results data for evaluation. Key questions then prompt the reader to evaluate the patient, and reach a decision regarding their condition and the possible treatment plan; while the answer pages reveal the processes a clinician goes through in such situations.The volumes are designed with the student in mind, and include features to aid self-directed learning, clinical reasoning and problem-solving. The format is suitable for general self-assessment as part of exam revision, for swotting up before psychiatry OSCEs, and for junior doctors about to start a rotation in the psychiatry ward. 100 Cases are particularly relevant for students on problem-based learning courses.100 Cases in Psychiatry covers a wide range of topics such as phobias, bereavement, and paranoia, across the following subject areas: Adult Psychiatry, Older People, Forensic Psychiatry, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Learning Disability Psychiatry.
