The evaluation of symptoms and the recommendation of appropriate treatment are important parts of every community pharmacist's daily activities. This volume, written by a pharmacist and a medical practitioner, describes a rational approach to questioning patients to establish whether the symptoms they present are minor and therefore can be dealt with by the pharmacist, or indicate possible clinical pathology requiring referral to a medical practitioner. This new third edition has been revised and updated to reflect changes in therapeutics and practice. Sixty colour photographs have been included throughout the book to assist with the recognition of common medical complaints. At the end of each chapter, hypothetical case studies have been included to illustrate the role of the pharmacist in evaluating the symptoms of minor illnesses and recommending an appropriate course of action.
