The aim of this book is to focus on the bedside psychiatry. This book provides trainees in psychiatry with an overview of day to day patient evaluation and treatment planning. This book comprised of 2 sections, which include interview, clinical examination and management and appendices, which are further divided into 4 chapters. Chapter 1 begins with an introduction to the interview itself with reference to goals, process, and the key components of the physician-patient relationship. Chapter 2, History—is a guide to taking a comprehensive and thorough history. Chapter 3, Examination—emphasizes the importance of physical, central nervous system, and Mental State Examination (MSE) in a psychiatric evaluation. The chapter on Mental State Examination, as you would expect, gets particular attention.

Chapter 4 consists of Diagnostic Formulation, Risk Assessments, Mental Capacity Assessment and Treatment Planning, Safeguarding, and Safe Prescribing. Appendices (Appendix 1 to 38) provide additional useful clinical reference material.
