About The Product

This series acknowledges the substantial gap that still exists in psychiatry between research evidence and clinical practice: clinicians are sometimes incompletely aware of research findings, or regard them as biased, not convincing or not relevant to their practice. By using systematic reviews with accompanying commentaries this volume is able to assess the "evidence" and "experiences" to give a critical and objective account of the relevant issues, while focusing on key topics. This comprehensive book addresses schizophrenia through a systematic review of the available rearch evidence.

This book "...was a pleasure to review. One can dip in and out of it at random to find an important aspect of schizophrenia summarised in a few paragraphs. The reviews are all well written, balanced and up-to-date. It is designed for an international readership, and come commentaries, such as those on continental concepts of schizophrenia, or experience of stigma in the less industrialised world, are rarely found together in one volume." -British Journal of Psychiatry, 2001
