Competency in Combining Pharmacotherapy and Psychotherapy : Integrated and Split Treatment, Second Edition

Most clinicians endorse the combination of pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy as more effective and beneficial than each modality alone, but combining these treatments can be a complicated and highly variable process.

Competency in Combining Pharmacotherapy and Psychotherapy: Integrated and Split Treatment is designed to help psychiatrists at any stage of their career achieve competency in combining and coordinating pharmacotherapeutic and psychotherapeutic treatments for the benefit of their patients.

This guide, now in its updated, second edition, addresses both integrated (single clinician) and split/collaborative (multiple clinicians) treatments, discussing for each:

– The selection of medication and psychotherapy
– The patient evaluation and opening
– Sequencing
– Evaluating, monitoring, and supervising treatment
– Terminating and transitioning patient care

The book also offers a chapter – new to this second edition – that focuses on primary care access for mental health services in the context of integrated and split/collaborative care.

The rapid transformation of clinical care models in new health systems means that competence in integrated and split/collaborative care is absolutely vital for long-established clinicians as well as for psychiatric professionals in the early stages of their careers.

Competency in Combining Pharmacotherapy and Psychotherapy offers an unrivaled introduction to the complex process of combining medication and psychosocial treatments, clearly defining the competencies of combining two modalities. Psychiatric educators should note that this resource relates to all six main competencies of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education: patient care and procedural skills, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism, and systems-based practice.

Analytical Scientists in Pharmaceutical Product Development: Task Management and Practical Knowledge

This book explains task management concepts and outlines practical knowledge to help pharmaceutical analytical scientists become productive and enhance their career.

•Presents broad topics such as product development process, regulatory requirement, task and project management, innovation mindset, molecular recognition, separation science, degradation chemistry, and statistics.

•Provokes thinking through figures, tables, and case studies to help understand how the various functions integrate and how analytical development can work efficiently and effectively by applying science and creativity in their work.

•Discusses how to efficiently develop a fit-for-purpose HPLC method without screening dozens of columns, gradients, or mobile phase combinations each time, since the extra effort may not provide enough of a benefit to justify the cost and time in a fast-paced product development environment.

Advances in Neuropharmacology: Drugs and Therapeutics

Here is a comprehensive overview of the drugs that act on the central and peripheral nervous systems. This volume thoroughly describes the diseases associated with the nervous system and the drugs used for their treatment while also looking at the current status of these drugs and their future potential and challenges.

Divided into three sections, the book first focuses on the drugs that affect the functions of the autonomic nervous system to produce therapeutic effects. These drugs may act presynaptically by manipulating the genesis, storage, and secretion, and by blocking the action of neurotransmitters. Some drugs may trigger or impede postsynaptic receptors. Section 2 focuses on drugs that affect the central nervous system, including antianxiety drugs, sedative and hypnotic drugs, antidepressant drugs, antipsychotic drugs, antiepileptic drugs, and many more. It covers the pharmacological management of various diseases, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, and others. The last section offers explanations of neurochemical interactions with the aim to develop drugs that have beneficial effects on neurochemical imbalances. This section demonstrates models to assess the transport of drugs across the blood-brain barrier and nanomedicine to treat brain disorders.

This rich compilation provides thorough and extensive research updates on the important advances in neuropharmacological drugs and drug therapy from experienced and eminent academicians, researchers, and scientists from throughout the world.

Pharmaceutical Parallel Trade in the UK

Parallel trade in pharmaceuticals within the EU involves the legal repacking and reselling of genuine medicines and dates back to the 1970s when a number of pharmacists realized that drug prices varied significantly between member states. By 2002, the UK market for parallel-distributed pharmaceuticals represented ?1,300 million. It is now the largest market in Europe. Parallel importing is controversial. On the one hand, there are the importers, who argue that they are pursuing a legitimate business in a free-trade area, making significant profits through price mark-ups. On the other hand, manufacturers point out that the price differentials that lead to parallel importing are not the result of market prices, but caused by price and reimbursement regulation by governments. If market pricing were permitted, the problem would be much reduced. The main concern of this study, however, is to establish whether patient safety is put at risk by parallel importing. Does repackaging endanger quality control and hygiene, and does parallel importing increase the chances of counterfeit products entering legal supply channels. In the first part, the authors, both from the Health and Social Care Unit at the LSE, set out in detail the facts on parallel trade from continental Europe to the UK, taking into account legislative, regulatory and economic issues. In the second part, a series of experts considers the evidence of product tampering and quality control, as well as the risk of counterfeiting, in order to tackle the sizeable question of the extent to which it is possible to protect patients without erecting barriers to legal trade.
