Summary

Symptoms in the Pharmacy is the indispensable guide to the management of common symptoms seen in the pharmacy.

Designed for quick and easy reference with separate chapters for each ailment, each chapter incorporates a decision making framework in which the information necessary for treatment and suggestions on ‘when to refer’ is distilled into helpful summary boxes. Decision making support is provided in cases involving ethical dilemmas. It also includes example case studies providing the view of pharmacists and doctors and, in their own words, patient perspectives of what it is like to live with and manage conditions such as migraine and eczema. These easy-to-follow chapters can be read cover to cover or turned to for quick reference.

This seventh edition covers the availability of new medicines and includes new sections and case studies for 'POM' to 'P' switches. It continues to draw upon the latest evidence for treatment guidelines and includes expanded coverage of common infectious diseases and important safety advice on the use of medicines in children. It also features colour photographs of skin conditions enabling the differentiation and diagnosis of common skin complaints.

With advice from a pharmacist and GP author team, Symptoms in the Pharmacy covers ailments which will be encountered in the pharmacy on a daily basis and should be kept close at hand for frequent consultation.
