Compiled by a combination of practitioners and academics working in psychiatry, psychology and community medicine, this book focuses on higher prevalence disorders, common problems that General/Family Practitioners encounter, and current guidelines on regularly used pharmacotherapies. General Practice Psychiatry adopts a problem-based learning approach to the diagnosis and treatment of psychiatric patients for General/Family and psychiatric practitioners to use in clinical consultations and as an easy reference manual.

About the Authors

Dr. Grant Blashki (MD, MBBS, FRACGP) is a practising GP, a Fellow of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners and a Senior Lecturer at Monash University (honorary), University of Melbourne and Kings College London (honorary). He has a strong commitment to improving mental health care in primary care settings and has written over 30 peer reviewed publications as well as undertaken numerous research projects relating to this field. For over a decade he has worked closely with Professor Fiona Judd and Professor Leon Piterman, developing general practitioner training in psychiatry, including national and international conferences and developing a masters of general practice psychiatry. He has been particularly inspired by his father Dr. Tim Blashki, who undertook pioneering general practice psychiatry research in the late 1960s.

Leon Piterman (Mmed, MedSt, MRCP, FRACGP) is Professor of General Practice, Head of the School of Primary Health Care and Senior Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences at Monash University. Having graduated in 1971 from the University of Melbourne, after a number of residency posts in Melbourne and London, he combined clinical general practice with a part-time academic career at Monash until 1993, when he took up the post of Director of Graduate Studies in the Department of General Practice. He is responsible for establishing Australia's largest and most successful university based Diploma/Masters in Family Medicine for general practitioners. This program has produced over 1000 graduates nationally and internationally.

In 1996, along with Fiona Judd and Grant Blashki, he was responsible for establishing the General Practice Psychiatry Program, which led to the development of the Graduate Certificate and Masters in General Practice Psychiatry and laid the foundations for research in Primary Care Mental Health at Monash University. His other academic interests are in medical education, cardiovascular disease and chronic disease management.
