Psychotropic Drug Prescriber's Survival Guide: Ethical Mental Health Treatment in the Age of Big Pharma Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Considerations for ethical treatment, however, demand that clinicians be wary of advertising hype, aggressive sales pitches, and confusing statistical methods. is a long-awaited primer on the basic principles of pharmaceutical research, statistical methods, and health care ethics. The common sense approach of the authors enables practitioners to use information about psychiatric medications intelligently and to develop responsible prescribing practices. This book appears at a time when new guidelines are emerging every day in response to growing public concern about industry marketing. The authors write within the context of this changing policy environment and apprise readers of what is developing in terms of regulations and what impact those regulations will have on their practice. However, sensible prescribers recognize that responsible treatment still cannot depend on external controls. helps clinicians negotiate this complex situation and arms them with strategies for getting to the facts in an era in which solid science competes with marketing fictions.

Book News Annotation:

Steven (psychiatry, U. of Buffalo) and Amelia (medicine, New York U.) offer fellow mental health clinicians a guide for dealing with the expensive, intrusive, and often misleading marketing campaigns by big pharmaceutical companies. They begin by explaining the fundamentals of the industry, such as research design, industry-sponsored clinical trials, and how to interpret research studies. Then they consider aspects of clinical practice, including how to identify and deal with marketing, how to deal with the influence of other parties, and how to adapt a practice in light of new negative findings.
