About this product
- DescriptionPersonality disorder w accounts for a substantial portion of the workload of most community mental health teams in the UK and borderline personality disorder is associated with significant functional impairments for the individual. The NICE guideline takes the first comprehensive view of the disorder and is an important resource for healthcare professionals to improve people's long-term outcomes. Recent years have seen an exponential rise in available treatments for personality disorder and the guideline on borderline personality disorder covers the available evidence on all of those interventions. It also includes management of crises, configuration and organisation of services and experience of care. The primary focus is on adults, but the guideline looks at emerging characteristics of borderline personality disorder in younger people. The guideline also considers the needs of those with learning disabilities and contains a useful overview of borderline personality disorder. NICE Mental Health Guidelines These guidelines from NICE set out clear recommendations, based on the best available evidence, for health care professionals on how to work with and implement physical, psychological and service-level interventions for people with various mental health conditions.
