A Doody's Core Title for 2018.

Primary care physicians know from experience how many patients come to them needing help with anxiety and related disorders: these disorders have a lifetime prevalence rate of 30%, but they often seem to be present in a much higher proportion of primary care visits.

Time pressure challenges every primary care provider who responds to these disorders. The Primary Care Toolkit for Anxiety and Related Disorders—carefully aligned with the DSM-5—gives you the tools to help you treat your patients promptly and effectively.

Quickly find the information and strategies you need using summaries of diagnostic criteria and pharmacological therapies, severity assessments, treatment summaries, and case studies. Efficiently screen, diagnose, and manage common anxiety and related disorders, using visit-by-visit guides for mild, moderate, and severe disorders.

An accompanying CD puts the best, most effective diagnostic tools at your fingertips, ready to be printed and used by you and your patients: patient self-report forms and questionnaires, symptom checklists, functional impairment assessment scales, and more.

The Primary Care Toolkit helps prepare you for the 7 anxiety and related disorders that primary care physicians see most often:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder,
  • Panic disorder,
  • Agoraphobia,
  • Social anxiety disorder,
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder,
  • Posttraumatic stress disorder,
  • Adjustment disorder.

Whether you are a family physician, an ER doctor, a pharmacist, a nurse or nurse practitioner, or a medical student, the information and resources in The Primary Care Toolkit for Anxiety and Related Disorders will add to your clinical primary care knowledge and skills.

Dr. Bianca Lauria-Horner is an associate professor in the Department of Psychiatry at Dalhousie University and an expert in primary care mental health. She is extensively involved in mental health CME activities and medical training at local, national, and international levels.
