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.

Editorial Reviews

"This remains the best single "rotation-sized" book for clinical clerks in family practice.  Its size and scope makes it ideal for any student, regardless of whether he or she intends to enter family practice or even a primary care discipline in general. The book's approach provides a unique blend of science and humanism that is a credit to our specialty and a positive influence on all students rotating through a family practice clerkship. Finally, its logical and easy to administer format make it an ideal tool for teachers of family practice to employ."  Doody's Review
