About this book


Fundamentals of Family Medicine presents the common clinical problems encountered by generalists and, through case studies and discussion questions, enhances the reader's understanding of the process by which practitioners define, prioritize, and manage the diverse problems of many patients.
Core chapters from the fourth edition of Family Medicine: Principles and Practice were selected and updated to cover: - Common acute problems such as otitis media - Common chronic problems such as diabetes mellitus and hypertension - Must-never-miss problems such as myocardial infarction - Problems under current investigation such as HIV - And areas of emphasis for family practitioners such as geriatric care, sports medicine, and domestic violence.
