Overview

Primary Care Management takes you into the practice of primary care medicine. In 15 carefully wrought cases, author Goutham Rao explores a wide variety of patients and their problems, from involuntary weight loss and Type II diabetes to infantile diarrhea, early HIV infection, and acute lower back pain. The cases are presented through a process of gradual disclosure, each narrative section followed by thought-provoking questions and discussions of the latest relevant research findings. These are not quick overviews but in-depth studies of the kinds of problems encountered every day in a primary care setting. Primary Care Management is ideal as an introductory text for introductory care management and clerkship students or as a review for residents and practitioners.
