Summary

Like its predecessors, this edition of FUNDAMENTALS OF FAMILY MEDICINE will present the medical student and practitioner with common clinical problems of family practice, placing special emphasis on those problems most common in the office setting. Topics such as pregnancy, labor and delivery, common problems of the elderly, headache, hypertension, urinary tract infections, osteoarthritis, HIV, anxiety disorders and athletic injuries are thoroughly reviewed and updated and include new information on drugs, as well as new case studies. The third edition will also include new discussion questions, new information on problems of the infant and child and tables describing the Folstein Minimental Status Exam and assessment of the elderly. New chapters include: The Family Physician's Role in Responding to Biological and Chemical Terrorism and Information Mastery: Evidence-Based Medicine. A unique, continuing feature of the third edition will be The Index Family paradigm, a three-generation extended family with selected illnesses. A genogram will introduce this family model and specific family members will form the basis of case presentations for discussions that follow each chapter. Useful material on clinical prevention consultations and referrals will also be updated and featured. This book -- clinical, portable and easy-to-use -- is a "must have" for all students in Family Medicine.
