About this book


New material in a new format is contained in this third edition of Family Medicine. The comprehensive text nevertheless remains true to the goal of previous editions in offering a scientific approach to health and illness within the context of the family. Using up-to-date clinical material, the book demonstrates how the family physician may provide comprehensive health care to persons of all ages. The first part of Family Medicine discusses such topics as the conceptual basis of family as discipline and specialty, problem differentiation, family-centered health care, longitudinal care, clinical reasoning, and resource management. The second part explores both problems related to organs and systems and problems related to the person, family and community, including: pregnancy, care of infants, children, adolescents, and the elderly; behavioral and psychiatric problems; emergency and critical care; sports medicine; alcoholism and substance misuse; environmental health; and neoplastic and infectious diseases. Family Medicine, with its greatly expanded in-depth coverage of the most commonly encountered clinical core problems and procedures in family medicine, continues to be a textbook written and edited by family physicians for family physicians.
