Now researchers have identified the prevalence of adjustment disorder in primary care, and found general practitioner recognition very low but with high rates of antidepressant prescribing. Possible reasons for the seemingly low prevalence, recognition rate and inappropriate management include its recognition as a residual category in diagnostic instruments and poor delineation from other disorders or from normal stress responses. These problems could be rectified in ICD-11 and DSM-5 if changes according it full syndromal status, among others, were made. This would have an impact on future research.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Royal College of Psychiatrists||Keywords:||Diagnosis;Odin||DOI:||10.1192/bjp.bp.112.110494||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
