is reference 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 13 Quick Reference Guides:
Acute Stress Disorder and Posttraumtic Stress Disorder
Alzheimers Disease and Other Dementias of Late Life
Borderline Personality Disorder
Major Depressive Disorder
Psychiatric Evaluation of Adults
Substance Use Disorders
New interactive flowcharts: Now, complex algorithms and protocols are transformed from static images into dynamic step-by-step decision support tools. See how this innovative feature can quickly and easily walk you through even the most intricate decision models.
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 APAs 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 psychiatrists day-to-day work with patients.
Crucial information is abstracted from the full guideline to ensure that the QRG closely follows the wording of the parent guideline. The abstracted text is then shortened further, with greatest emphasis placed on material most directly relevant to treatment decision making. Thus, material about diagnosis, epidemiology, and other background information is not included. Similarly, most of the information regarding treatment for special populations is excluded. The QRG is reviewed and approved by the Executive Committee for Practice Guidelines.
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 a recommendation 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.
Plus, with Skyscape's powerful cross-linking you can quickly and easily access related drug, disease and diagnostic topics across your entire mobile reference library.
