9780195115178: Textbook of Family Medicine

This text defines and conceptualizes the field of family medicine. The book has been extensively revised; much new material has been added on the patient-centered clinical method, illness narratives, the biological basis of family medicine, health promotion, the concept of risk, and the contribution of evidence-based medicine. A new chapter on alternative (complementary) medicine fills the need for reliable information on this topic.

Review:


Praise for the previous edition:


"The best description and analysis of family medicine's clinical methods to date and thus would be highly useful for medical students being introduced to the discipline of family medicine. Family practice residents and practitioners would also clearly benefit from McWhinney's lucid style, his integration of recent family medicine research, and his outstanding description of the patient-oriented approach."--Journal of Family Practice


"McWhinney provides a philosophical and scientific rationale for the generalist physician and develops a patient-centered clinical method for meeting the public's needs. With its enriching literary examples, this insightful and well written text is enjoyable to read."--Annals of Internal Medicine


"It is rare to be able to recommend a book to doctors at all stages of their careers, but this is such a book. It will give the trainee an insight into the subtleties of general practice, and the established general practitioner will find a new enthusiasm for his or her work. I would describe this as a textbook for the 90s, combining the exciting developments in general practice over the last 30 years and succeeding in one book in bringing together the spectrum from Bayes to Balint...A refreshing and informative read."--Family Practice
