Research Opportunities in Primary Care

 Primary Care  Comments Off on Research Opportunities in Primary Care
Jan 042019
 

Over 90% of contact between patients and doctors takes place in general practice, making it a valuable research arena, but many members of the primary care team are unaware of the opportunities for them to do research. This book provides information on the research options for individuals and practices, and describes research work undertaken recently by GPs and their teams in a variety of practice settings. It is easy to read, and assumes no previous knowledge of the subject. It is ideal for GPs and all members of the primary healthcare team, especially practice and community nurses, GP registrars and pharmacists. Research Opportunities in Primary Care covers everything from being part of a research network to undertaking a higher degree, and describes the impact of research involvement on the professional and the practice. Sections of each chapter are written by people actually doing research in this setting, to give a ”hands on” feel of what it means in practical terms. This new text creates a set of practical notes enhanced by specific examples of service-based activity. It complements Research Methods in Primary Care, which introduces the range of relevant skills to provide a solid basis for starting research.

Extending Primary Care: Polyclinics, Resource Centres, Hospitals-At-Home

 Primary Care  Comments Off on Extending Primary Care: Polyclinics, Resource Centres, Hospitals-At-Home
Jan 042019
 

‘Fundamental changes in the Health Service demand a radical shift in approaches to patient core. The NHS is becoming increasingly led by the primary care sector. This has a greater meaning than simply more involvement of GPs in secondary care purchasing. It means that we start from where the patient is, in their own home and community. We provide care for them there and only move them into secondary services if and when it is appropriate to do so. ‘Extending Primary Care shows that it is possible to experiment beyond traditional boundaries in these areas. It will provide encouragement to people who work in some of these difficult settings by showing what can be done… This book could not be more timely as a resource to many managers who will need to extend their own understanding of primary care – in the fullest sense of the whole team of people in primary care and the associated community health services.’ From the Foreword by Barbara Stocking

Primary and Revision Total Ankle Replacement 2016: Evidence-Based Surgical Management

 Orthopedics, Primary Care  Comments Off on Primary and Revision Total Ankle Replacement 2016: Evidence-Based Surgical Management
Nov 062018
 

Bringing together the most up-to-date information on all aspects of primary and revision total ankle replacement (TAR), this definitive text focuses on TAR procedures and prostheses available for use in North America with additional “lessons learned” from the international community. The text is evidence-based, includes bullet points for quick reference, and is heavy on step-by-step photographs during surgery. Accordingly, the chapter content over four main sections is a purposeful mix of theory, data, and tips/pearls with detailed photographs, tables, and references. Section One provides an introduction to and history of TAR, including a discussion of fixed versus mobile bearings, TAR versus arthrodesis, and current indications and contraindications for primary TAR. Section Two focuses on primary TAR, covering a number of contemporary systems, such as INBONE, INFINITY, SALTO TALARIS and STAR. Secondary procedures with TAR comprise Section Three, including management of wound healing complications, soft tissue injuries, and varus and valgus malalignment. Section Four discusses revision TAR, covering topics such as infected replacements, component subsidence, and limb salvage as well as issues surrounding specific implant failures. Comprehensive yet practical, Primary and Revision Total Ankle Replacement will be the gold standard for books on this topic for many years to come and will provide invaluable instruction to orthopedic surgeons, podiatrists and foot and ankle clinicians worldwide.

Women’s Health in Clinical Practice: A Handbook for Primary Care

 Primary Care  Comments Off on Women’s Health in Clinical Practice: A Handbook for Primary Care
Oct 252018
 

Traditionally, women’s health has been synonymous with obstetrics and gynecology. With the exception of Family Medicine physicians who are trained in obstetric and gynecologic issues, most primary care physicians have received little training in reproductive health issues even though they care for women and girls.

In recent years, there has been growing recognition that sex differences do exist between the organ systems of women and men, and research about male and female physiologic differences has bolstered the growing body of knowledge about sex differences. Women’s Health: A Handbook for Primary Care presents the most recent changes in current research and provides the reader with an easily accessible reference to common women’s health issues.

The topics in this text range from health problems that largely affect only women, like cervical cancer and breast disease, to health problems that present differently in women than in men, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Chapters on polycystic ovary syndrome and oral health issues address health problems that bring together multiple organ systems including reproductive, cardiovascular and dental health. There are also useful chapters not typically found in primary care texts like eating disorders, interpersonal violence and sexual health. Women’s Health: A Handbook for Primary Care is succinct, well organized, and contains easily understood, practical information for the most common health problems seen in women. This volume is a valuable text for anyone who practices primary care medicine.

Peripheral Vascular Disease in Primary Care

 Primary Care  Comments Off on Peripheral Vascular Disease in Primary Care
Oct 142018
 

‘Peripheral vascular disease is common and has a significant adverse effect on the quality of life. A general practice with a list size of 6000 patients will have approximately 30 symptomatic patients with peripheral vascular disease’ – Anita Sharma Peripheral vascular disease is a commonly neglected condition and therefore often presents in an advanced stage or in a life-threatening manner. General practitioners can play a vital role by making early diagnoses, prompt referrals, and in coordinating vascular risk factor management in primary care. This book is a concise and practical guide to recognising, managing and reducing the cardiovascular risk factors in patients with peripheral vascular disease (PVD). Completely up-to-date, it offers clear direction for all primary care professionals. ‘A pleasure for any busy professional to read and an excellent source and reference book for all primary care professionals. Students, nurses and registrars will be surprised with the descriptions of various pathologies simply explained, which they will seldom have noticed while working on hospital wards.’ Dr Michael Taylor, in his Foreword ‘A welcome source of knowledge and information, particularly for those working in the primary care setting with the aim of improving their standards of care.’ – Dr Deepak Bhatnagar, in his Foreword ‘Anita Sharma is an experienced, practising GP whose book on PVD offers new insights for primary care professionals and is a generous contribution to the work of primary care practitioners everywhere.

Primary Care Ethics

 Primary Care  Comments Off on Primary Care Ethics
Sep 042018
 

Relevant for the entire primary care team, this book provides a diverse range of perspectives on current topical issues. Healthcare ethics is a subject of increasing interest, especially when it related to some of the challenging themes regularly discussed in the media. Until now there has been little useful literature for those in primary care, where ethical problems are often experienced with a unique set of issues. Primary Care Ethics is rigorous and academic, while remaining highly accessible for the full range of practitioners. Moral and legal aspects are clearly distinguished throughout, and the theme-based approach is stimulating and original. In providing greater depth and breadth in this subject than has been available previously, the book is both practical and thought-provoking, and essential reading for everyone, whether in academic, training or practice-based primary care

This manual is based upon the experience of those who have faced the questions and found the answers. It is intended for all those involved in Trust management. The questions are not all board-level strategic questions; some are quite mundane and managerial. However, the questions will have to be asked and the answers will determine what it is like to work within the organization, be one of its patients or a user of its services
