Gastroenterology Update: Evidence-based Reviews for Continuing Professional Development
Radcliffe Pub., 2004 - Medical - 324 pages
This edition has been written to provide general practitioners with an easy-to-use guide to the management of the vast majority of emergencies. The first contact a GP has with an emergency case is almost always a telephone call, and the advice then given by the doctor is of paramount importance in the subsequent management of the case. A feature of the book is that each topic begins with advice on how to handle the initial telephone call. Each problem is then approached logically with notes on assessment, advice and management necessary when the patient is seen. The emphasis is on practical primary care, with discussion of differential diagnosis taken as far as is needed to decide the best immediate course of action. The book should be useful for the practising GP to use by the telephone, in the car or on his rounds. It can also be used as a teaching text for GP trainees, and a reference for hospital doctors doing GP locums.
