Bipolar disorder is a heterogenous condition and there is considerable disagreement about its definition and diagnosis. In most cases, however, the onset occurs during early
adulthood and the illness follows a cyclic course, between episodes of acute mania and bipolar depression.
The 10-minute consultation: bipolar disorder
will provide a holistic approach to the assessment and management of bipolar disorder, stressing the importance of ongoing
patient review and recall to ensure delivery of high-quality, evidence-based treatment.
The clinician's manual is designed to be used in the clinic and for studying, containing targeted guidance on all aspects of the primary care clinician's role. Written by experienced key opinion leaders, the book supports everyday patient care and improved outcomes.
