Your Questions Answered
editore: Churchill Livingstone
Anxiety symptoms probably account for up to a third of all consultations in general practice. There are increasing demands on GPs and other primary care providers to be able to respond to the needs of patients suffering from anxiety disorders, and to be able to provide appropriate information. This book, in the popular Q and A format of the "Your Questions Answered" series, provides succinct, expert, evidence-based knowledge. Although aimed mainly at the primary care practitioner, it also addresses many questions asked about anxiety by other physicians, practice and community psychiatric nurses, trainee psychiatrists, and patients. Some frequently asked patient questions, in non-medical language, are included, and there is a list of sources of further information and patient support.
