AI The trend in medical practice is towards longterm care in the community, as a result of medical advances, higher recovery rates, the ageing population and fewer hospital beds. Medical education, however, is still focused on acute hospital care, despite the high proportion of doctors who go into community practice.
Reorganisation and restructuring of health services in the US and Europe have placed primary care centre-stage in the provision of health care. Advances in medical practice, changes to the funding of health services and an ageing population all lie behind this trend towards long term community-based care. These changes bring profound implications for medical education, not least of which is the need to reconfigure the traditional curriculum. Ã£Community-Based Medical EducationÃ£ addresses the need for change in medical education and outlines some of the key elements which are necessary to any effective reform of this kind.
This invaluable text analyses relationships between health care and health care education, sets the scene for educational reform and suggests directions for the development of education programmes. Information is provided on the role of community-based teaching, teaching strategies, inter-professional education and inter-agency co-operation. International case studies and illustrations support the text and clarify the points made.

Noel Boaden and John Bligh are both at University of Liverpool.Review:
"I highly recommend this book to medical and health educators, and to community-based primary care groups who interact with medical students, residents, and physicians in practice for the following reasons: Broaden and Bligh's thoughtful critique of community-based medical education and
challenges for the future; their superbly integrated literature review; the gem-like tables that crystallize important information in an apprehendable form."--Teaching and Learning in Medicine
