This definitive textbook on Practitioner Health mixes academic rigour with practitioner and patient experiences. The book covers all aspects of care relevant to any regulated health professional, focusing on the care of doctors and nurses with mental illness. The book builds on themes introduced in the award-winning publication Beneath the White Coat: Doctors, Their Minds and Mental Health from the same author. It provides an invaluable 'how to manage' companion to supplement and enhance the broader issues relating to doctors and mental illness addressed in that first book.
