Contains Quick Reference Guides (QRGs) to all of the published APA Practice Guidelines. QRGs are created by abstracting the crucial information from the text of the full guideline, with greatest emphasis placed on retaining the material most directly relevant to the treatment decision making, and are intended for day-to-day work with patients. This compendium contains 10 quick reference guides: Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias of Late Life Borderline Personality Disorder Bipolar Disorder Delirium Eating Disorders HIV/AIDS Major Depressive Disorder Panic Disorder Schizophrenia Suicide Each guide is derived from the full text of a practice guideline developed by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) and published originally in "The American Journal of Psychiatry," The purpose of these QRGs is to facilitate clinical use of APA's practice guidelines by physicians. Although the practice guidelines provide detailed recommendations for treatment and comprehensively describe the evidence to support those recommendations, their length and text format do not allow for easy use in the psychiatrist's day-to-day work with patients. hese guidelines help you: Understand clinical features and symptoms Make a confident differential diagnosis Evaluate interventions commonly used to treat specific disorders Select the appropriate site of service Educate the patient and family Assess the efficacy and risks of available medications Develop an individualized treatment plan Central to proper use of these QRGs is recognition that they do not stand alone. The psychiatrist using them should be familiar with the full-text practice guideline on which each QRG is based. For clarification of arecommendation or for a review of the evidence supporting a particular strategy, the psychiatrist will find it helpful to return to the guideline. With rare exception the QRG faithfully reflects the content of the guideline. Exceptions are specifically noted in the QRG. Each quick reference guide presents the major recommendations and their sequencing with enough detail to be both clinically helpful and practical to use.
