Oxford Handbook of General Practice Summary

Oxford Handbook of General Practice by Chantal Simon

A lifeline for the busy GP, the Oxford Handbook of General Practice covers the whole of general practice. It includes hands-on advice and allows rapid access to information to help with any day-to-day problems which might arise in general practice. The general practice section has been revised to include the new General Medical Services contract and appraisal and revalidation. There are new chapters on complementary medicine, chronic disease management and elderly care and increased emphasis on evidence based medicine, sports medicine and practice in a multicultural society. Pointers to further information for GPs and advice and support for patients, which can be easily accessed from the GP surgery, are included throughout. The layout of the handbook has been redesigned with the use of colour-coding to aid quick reference and additional flow charts, tables and diagrams have been included to make information easier to access.

Oxford Handbook of General Practice Reviews

At less than on quarter of the price of a QOF point (GBP29.95), this book is excellent value for money should be on the shelves of every Director of Public Health, or public health professional working within primary care organisations. Public Health The best book by a country mile. I'd definitely recommend it! This is a book that demands to be used. It is well build for the job ... The book is hugely and surprisingly comprehensive, covering vast tracts of areas of knowledge that GPs need to possess. Clinical and non clinical areas are amply covered in really good detail. The style is factual yet helpful and accessible and a simple scan of the relevant section is likely to help a GP manage a situation. ... For GP trainers like myself, his is an excellent source of tutorial material. The clinical sections are just good. ... it is a frontline recipe book for all GPs-busy or not so busy. Without doubt, in my mind this is the best available book for British general practice and it ideal for GP registrars, newly starting GPs, mid career GPs and GPs wanting to freshen up their knowledge. ... there is little excuse not to buy it. Dr Harry Brown What a treat - 1,100 pages of condensed knowledge and wisdom on everything from the new contract to what to do for obstetric shock. ... this is an essential - and I mean essential - piece of kit. The Sessional GP A comprehensive guide to nearly everything. It is the yellow book equivalent for general practice. If you only buy one book, make sure it is this one. British Medical Journal Small yet perfectly formed! This book is small enough to fit into any bag, or a capacious pocket, yet covers almost anything (clinical, practical, administrative) that any doctor or undergraduate working in general practice needs to know...I am extremely pleased to have been able to use and review this book. I have no hesitation in recommending it to its target audience. BMA Medical Book Award Panel 2006
