Disease Management is a comprehensive introduction to the management of diseases which are commonly encountered in, but not exclusive to, primary care. Pharmacology is considered in the context of clinical practice and a holistic approach is taken to patient care to include lifestyle issues, concurrent disease and treatment and the use of alternative remedies and complementary medicine. Useful summary tables are provided with examples of concurrent diseases to be considered when prescribing or giving advice on the use of alternative remedies. This textbook considers diseases by system and covers the common therapeutic issues. Numerous case studies and practice points complement the chapters and a new feature of self-assessment sections is included.
