A working group led by Dr. Konstantinos Fountoulakis developed the first International College of Neuropsychopharmacology (CINP) clinical guidelines for the treatment of Bipolar Disorders in adult patients. Their work is very thoroughly described in four separate papers (parts) included in this issue of the journal.
The first article is Background and Methods of the Development of Guidelines (Fountoulakis et al., 2017d); part 2 is Review, Grading of the Evidence, and a Precise Algorithm (Fountoulakis et al., 2017c); part 3 is The Clinical Guidelines (Fountoulakis et al., 2017a); and Part 4 is Unmet Needs in the Treatment of Bipolar Disorder and Recommendations for Future Research (Fountoulakis et al., 2017b).
