The importance of Extended Matching Items (EMIs) in the MRCPsych written test is growing. This book helps candidates get ready by outlining the structure of EMIs and then providing numerous examples of common exam problems. It covers the four key areas of the exam: clinical theory and skills, psychopharmacology, descriptive and psychodynamic psychopathology, and psychology and human development. To allow applicants who are unfamiliar with the format of EMIs to gradually assess their exam readiness, questions are arranged in order of increasing difficulty. Complete responses, justifications, and references are given.

ICD-11 Criteria for Factitious Disorder Imposed on Self

Factitious disorder imposed on self is characterised by feigning, falsifying, or inducing medical, psychological, or behavioural signs and symptoms or injury associated with identified deception. If a pre-existing disorder or disease is present, the individual intentionally aggravates existing symptoms or falsifies or induces additional symptoms. The individual seeks treatment or otherwise presents himself or herself as ill, injured, or impaired based on the feigned, falsified, or self-induced signs, symptoms, or injuries. The deceptive behaviour is not solely motivated by obvious external rewards or incentives (e.g., obtaining disability payments or evading criminal prosecution). This is in contrast to Malingering, in which obvious external rewards or incentives motivate the behaviour
