Medicines Management in Mental Health Care is divided into two parts. Part one provides mental health nurses and other mental health workers with a detailed understanding of the evidence-base for medicines management covering subjects including psychotropic medication and co-morbidity. Part two addresses the practical implications for clinical practice and provides vital guidance on prescribing and medicines management, working with service users, treatment adherence, evaluation skills and problem solving as well as specific advice relating to the realities of practice.
