Psychopharmacology: Practice and Contexts is a practical and accessible text to assist nursing and allied health students in their understanding of psychotropic medications. It covers treatment monitoring through a range of care plans and interventions and provides strategies for minimising risk. The text is designed to allow readers to develop insight into the great variability in the ways in which individuals experience mental health disorders, and the equally variable fashion in which each person has the potential to experience both benefit and harm as a result of drug treatment.

Key features:

  Oriented around the various groups of mental disorders, allowing students to assimilate information related to medication in the context of the mental health disorders that people experience.

  Each chapter begins with the information needed to build knowledge that can be applied later in thoughtful analysis of the numerous case vignettes throughout the book.

  Critical thinking exercises related to a particular disorder assist the student reader to consider a range of pharmacologic care contexts, challenges and practices.
