About this book


The seventh edition of this classic reference book has been vastly updated from its previous edition to reflect the many changes in clinical medicine since 2003. Although the book is intended for family physicians, the wide scope of clinical problems in the book will appeal to clinicians in many specialties. Family Medicine, 7th Edition, is a must-have reference for medical students, residents and practicing physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants involved in patient care.
This book is organized into short, focused chapters almost exclusively dedicated to topics relevant to daily practice. All lead authors are accomplished family physicians who can specifically address the needs, concerns, and interests of this crucial profession.
New chapters include Management of Mentally Ill Patients in Primary Care; Autism Spectrum Disorders; Care of the Difficult Patient; Alzheimer’s Disease and Other Dementias of the Elderly; Disorders of Nutrition; and Patient-Centered Medical Home.
