More About This Textbook


'This book is a most excellent addition to the knowledge base needed to deliver high-quality primary clinical care. It is 10 years since the author last pulled together a collection of the most authoritative clinical guidelines in an easily digestible format. Now a whole plethora of information is available online covering primary to tertiary care which to the busy primary care clinician can be overwhelming. This is therefore no longer a collection of all available guidelines - this is unashamedly a selection of the guidelines relevant to primary care that Dr Smith finds most useful in his daily practice as a very experienced general practitioner. He has included various resources that I have also found useful but difficult to locate, even online.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: Oriented to primary care clinicians in the United Kingdom, this book is a combination of guidelines and patient education handouts. It was last updated in 1997.
Purpose: In this guide, a primary care practitioner presents his practice habits with the patient education materials that he uses. This is useful in a limited capacity, but lacks the academic rigor to ensure that the guidelines have positive outcomes, the ultimate purpose of guidelines. Assuming the author merely wishes to impart his experience, it is successful.
Audience: Focused on National Health System general practitioners, the book is written by an experienced practitioner.
Features: The patient education figures are quite helpful and the references are current, but by no means comprehensive. The drug therapy tables are somewhat limited.
Assessment: This interesting but rudimentary book of guidelines does have some utility for beginning practitioners.
