This text looks at family medicine, detailing the clinical management of the most important conditions seen in primary practice in a problem-based format. The two-colour format gives an accessibility to charts, tables, algorithms and the overall design. It includes a review of modern family theory in the age of managed care, presentation of family medicine as a process, and sections on sports medicine and geriatics. The first part of the book reviews the principles of family medicine, its history, traditions, and culture and lays the groundwork for management of illness in a social, community, and family context. The second applies these principles in caring for the family including common acute problems, chronic problems, and behavioural disorders.
