Promotional Information

An introduction to epidemiological techniques for psychiatric research


The chapters are all extremely well written ... this is an excellent book, certainly required reading for anyone embarking on a career in psychiatric research. It should also prove useful for trainee psychiatrists preparing for their Membership examinations ... I also suspect this book is destined to become a core text for many courses on psychiatric research. Primary Care Mental Health, Vol 2, Issue 2
