Synopsis:

This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. Endorsed by the Royal College of General Practitioners, London, for postgraduate dermatology training, DERMATOLOGY: FUNDAMENTALS OF PRACTICE helps with the diagnosis of skin symptoms using history, examination, incremental investigations and referral. Side effects of common medicines, treatments, and the social and psychological impact of skin problems are covered. The book also gives advice regarding the successful co-ordination of care with other primary care health professionals, dermatologists and other appropriate specialists, promotes patients' skin well-being, and helps physicians empower patients to look after their own health and manage the effects of their conditions.
