Primary Care Management: Cases and Discussions

Hardback
Through the use of case studies the contributors to this book introduce the practice of primary care medicine. A wide variety of patients and their problems are explored: from involuntary weight loss and Type II diabetes to infantile diarrhoea, early HIV infection and acute lower back pain. The cases are presented through a process of gradual disclosure, each narrative section followed by thought-provoking questions and discussions of the latest relevant research findings.
