The Green Bookshop: Recommended Reading for Doctors and Others from the Medical Journal Education for Primary Care

 Primary Care  Comments Off on The Green Bookshop: Recommended Reading for Doctors and Others from the Medical Journal Education for Primary Care
Jun 232018
 

What makes a perfect bookshop? For me the London Review of Books Bookshop in London comes very close. It is not very big but the books are chosen with such care that the choice is always both intriguing and beguiling and it is very rare for me to summon the restraint necessary to leave empty- handed. It also includes a delightful little café with very good coffee and cakes that are much too tempting. John Salinsky’s Green Bookshop has all these components, with a particular emphasis on the importance of the coffee, but it is even better on two counts: fi rstly, his selection is equally broad but it has a subtle slant informed by his years of listening and talking to patients in general practice; and then there is the gentle erudition and commitment of the proprietor himself.
John believes in books as a force for good in the world in general and within general practice in particular. He relishes the power of words to help us make sense of what happens in the worlds around and within us and perhaps particularly to help us to understand the predicament of the other, of those whose experience of life is so different from our own. He believes in the capacity of books to enlarge our sympathies, our outlook and our experience and he knows that this potential is particularly important for doctors. He offers his own delight in books and sets out to tempt his customers to open a book
and begin reading but he is never didactic, never seeks to impose his own view or interpretation. His hope is to share one of the great pleasures of his life…

Care of Adults with Chronic Childhood Conditions: A Practical Guide

 Primary Care  Comments Off on Care of Adults with Chronic Childhood Conditions: A Practical Guide
Apr 172018
 

This book addresses the unique healthcare needs of adults with chronic childhood illnesses. It presents a model of primary and secondary prevention for emerging adulthood―primary prevention in which all young adults are screened for high-risk behaviors and health needs and secondary prevention in which young adults with chronic childhood conditions are optimized through coordinated care, connections to community resources and social/family support.

This book is organized in five parts. Part I provides a detailed overview of the health care transition from pediatrics to adult medicine from both a policy and practice perspective. In Part II, the concept of emerging adulthood as a developmental period is explored and strategies for providing improved comprehensive care for this age group are discussed. Part III reviews specific chronic childhood conditions, such as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, autism, cystic fibrosis, and diabetes mellitus, and offers clinical cases and summary reports that can be used as a quick guides to each condition. In Part IV, additional clinical considerations that are not necessarily condition-specific but are highly relevant to the care of young adults with chronic childhood conditions are examined. Part V describes the socio-legal issues involved in caring for this population.

Care of Adults with Chronic Childhood Conditions provides primary care providers with a new framework for the care of young adults and identifies opportunities to influence patient health outcomes over a life trajectory.
