9780070134591: John Murtagh's General Practice Companion Handbook

This edition of General Practice Companion Handbook reflects conditions covered in the fourth edition of General Practice. Updated throughout, it is even more topical and relevant for today’s general practitioner.

Clear and down-to-earth, this book is a practical guide to general practice and presents common medical conditions in an accessible alphabetical format.

The systematic approach, combined with Professor Murtagh's clear writing style, means this companion manual is a unique reference that can be used by general practitioners, students, nurses and all workers in non-specialist health disciplines.

In this edition, Professor Murtagh adopts a more evidence-based approach while maintaining the problem-based structure that is core to the manual’s appeal.

From the Back Cover:

With Murtagh’s General Practice 4e widely recognised as the most influential publication for general practice and primary health care, this companion volume distills the content of General Practice 4e into the one portable source of ready information. Covering some of the most common presentations, Murtagh’s General Practice 4e Companion Handbook is the concise version of the larger volume. The presentation of content has been condensed and abbreviated to ensure maximum information in a convenient and handy size. For the first time, information not available in the General Practice book is included here for reference in clinical settings outside of the practice. This includes antibiotic prescribing and special community disasters. General Practice 4e Companion Handbook is also a valuable study tool and revision guide for examination and assessment purposes.
