Review:

From the first editor:
This revision has been streamlined to allow for several new chapters, such as an in-depth look at provider impairment as well as updates on obesity, palliative care, and complementary medicine. In addition, the 350+ question-and-answer review section continues to provide concise discussions of specific topics that supplement the text.
In keeping with ABSAME s future new name as the Association for the Behavioral Sciences and Health Professions Education (ABSAHPE), we are convinced that this latest edition will lend itself ideally to teaching behavioral sciences for anyone pursuing a career in one of the health professions, including medicine, nursing, pharmacy, dentistry, social work and other allied health professions, osteopathy, and chiropractic. After all, the principles that are the foundation of any effective, compassionate provider patient relationship are fundamental to all our professions. So, too, are the societal barriers to proving excellent health care that can affect all healing relationships. --O. J. Sahler (Editor)

The person, the patient, must be the focus of health care, not the system or the profession. This outstanding book by O.J. Sahler, MD, and Jack Carr, PhD, and its integrated sciences model go a long way towards making this a reality. --Albert H. Eaton, PhD, M.Div, President of the Association for the Behavioral Sciences and Medical Education (ABSAME)

An outstanding integration of the most up-to-date scientific knowledge gathered across disciplines. A wonderful textbook and reference for primary care providers. --Pat DeLeon, PhD, MPH, JD, former President of the American Psychological Association
