Practical General Practice: Guidelines for Effective Clinical Management
Alex Khot, Andrew Polmear
Elsevier Butterworth-Heinemann, 2006 - Medical - 654 pages
This title has been prepared by general practitioners working in the UK. Practical General Practice is the leading guide to clinical management in primary care. It takes the form of a manual that can be used by the GP during consultation, but its recommendations are backed by the latest research evidence, so that it also serves as a GP's way into the general practice literature. Unlike other evidence-based guidance that is available either online or in paper format, it has an underlying structure which allows the GP to see immediately what treatment is recommended and why. Furthermore, those recommendations are concrete and specific, rather than a list of possibilities that the GP might wish to consider. The 5th edition has not only updated the material in the previous edition but has added new sections: for example, on chronic fatigue syndrome, eating disorders, MRSA, and domestic violence.
