Fundamentals of Clinical Psychopharmacology wins BMA Medical Book Award in Psychiatry

Monday, 12th September 2016

The book was one of 680 submitted to the British Medical Association for consideration for the BMA Medical Book Awards 2016. It was one of 8 highly commended and shortlisted in the "Psychiatry" section. At an awards ceremony on 7th September it was announced to have won first prize in this section.

The judges commented: "This book is a well-designed, well-written and well-edited reference book. As it will address the CPD needs of the senior practitioner, it may have more information than a trainee will initially require but the accessible style will allow a discriminating approach to using the text. It is a concise reference that achieves its stated aim of delivering an up-to-date review of the most current understanding of the state of psychopharmacology to meet the needs of the busy senior practitioner but also trainees."

The new edition was published in August 2015 and is available for purchase here for £20 (RRP £29.99), including postage and packaging.

Fundamentals of Clinical Psychopharmacology provides up-to-date, evidence-based and unbiased information about psychopharmacology. It spans the range of the discipline, from mode of action and side effects of drugs to meta-analyses of clinical trials. It is anchored to practice guidelines produced by the UK National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and the British Association for Psychopharmacology (BAP). Care has been taken to provide an international perspective that makes it equally useful to practitioners in the US and other countries. Read more on the publishers website.
