Thyroid Disease: A Case-Based and Practical Guide for Primary Care, by Dr. Emanuel Brams, is a supremely readable cased-based approach to understanding the myriad of disorders that encompass thyroid disease. Using cases derived from his busy practice, Dr. Brams gives us the history and physical examination details of each case, along with test results. Then, through a series of questions similar to that which any good clinician asks while caring for a patient, Dr. Brams explains an optimal approach to diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of thyroid disease, with an emphasis on the practical and common issues that primary care physicians see in their offices. This is an important book for primary care physicians because thyroid disease is common in the population we take care of and accounts for 3–5% of primary care visits. It is often cited as an area that primary care phy- cians find confusing. Dr. Brams clarifies thyroid disease and, through his generous sharing of cases, allows us to join him in making clear diagnoses as well as share in the ambiguity and decisions about approach when the diagnoses and course of treatment are not clear. In this way, the book is honest, and deals directly with the issues of thyroid disease as they are seen by us as physicians, not as we sometimes may wish they were seen if patients presented with the clarity of walking textbooks.

Medical Microbiology Testing in Primary Care 1st Edition

 Microbiology, Primary Care  Comments Off on Medical Microbiology Testing in Primary Care 1st Edition
Apr 032021
 

The book’s purpose is to help community-based primary care physicians and nurses, and laboratory-based microbiologists, better understand each other’s requirements in collecting and interpreting specimens, and thus to improve the quality of patient care, while saving resources and reducing unnecessary antibiotic prescription.

The book’s structure focuses on three basic principles: deciding whether a specimen is clinically necessary; how to collect the specimen effectively, and how to interpret the laboratory report.

Individual chapters cover all the main specimen types sent to the laboratory from primary care. At the beginning of each chapter a case scenario is used to identify critical steps in processing a particular specimen type, followed by quick action guides to assess current practice and implement necessary changes in procedure.

The award winning author of Clinical Bacteriology (BMA student book of the year 2005) has brought together a microbiologist, a primary care physician and a specialist in infectious disease, to produce this concise, highly illustrated guide, of value alike to primary care physicians, nurses, microbiologists and medical students.

Quality is at the heart of the government’s strategy for NHS development, and which is to be delivered through clinical governance. This book explores accreditation through practical case studies and research findings, and outlines how it can assure the quality of care. Systems of accreditation for measuring and improving quality are described, and show how they can be used easily and effectively to meet the challenges of the new NHS. It is clear, concise and relevant to all the current changes in healthcare provision. All those responsible for delivering a service based on clinical and cost effectiveness will find it essential reading. ‘In the United Kingdom primary health care is based almost wholly on general practice. From April 1999 all general practices will belong to primary care groups. Questions of quality and accountability will be high on their agenda as part of the new arrangements for clinical governance. This book on accreditation in primary care is therefore most timely.’ Sir Donald Irvine, President, General Medical Council, in the Introduction.

Managing Suicide Risk in Primary Care 1st Edition

 Primary Care  Comments Off on Managing Suicide Risk in Primary Care 1st Edition
Jan 192021
 

Primary care is the new frontier for preventing suicide and Bryan and Rudd are its pioneers, offering wisdom and guidance based on their experience in bridging behavioral health care to the primary health care setting. This is a truly significant reference.

Lanny Berman, PhD, ABPP
Executive Director, American Association of Suicidology
President, International Association for Suicide Prevention

In their pragmatic and useful book titled Managing Suicide Risk in Primary Care, Bryan and Rudd provide an essential reference guide for health care professionals working in primary care settings.”–PsycCRITIQUES

This book offers a comprehensive approach that can help the physician become competent to assess and intervene with suicidal risk as well as lessen his or her anxiety when dealing with patients at suicide risk. Needless to say, this can be a life and death matter for some patients… One of the great strengths of this book is how they have adapted insights and interventions from traditional mental health care for the uniqueness of primary care… I highly recommend this book for any professional working in primary care. It will be taken off the shelf for reference and reviewed many times in the course of a career.–Family Medicine Journal

 

Roughly forty-five percent of individuals who commit suicide make contact with a primary medical provider in the month prior to their death; nearly twenty percent make contact within one day of their death. This practical guide demonstrates how the primary care setting-an increasingly important provider of mental health treatment-can be an effective place for preventing suicide and providing ameliorative care.

Firmly grounded in the clinical realities of primary care, Bryan and Rudd address the key issues that often plague behavioral health consultants (BHCs) in such settings where appointments are brief, patient contact is limited, and decision making and treatment are collaborative. They offer effective strategies for BHCs to manage patients across a suicidal crisis beginning with the development of procedures prior to crisis, steps to take during a crisis, planning for post-crisis care, transition to specialty mental health facilities, and legal issues.

Key Features:

 

  • Targets techniques for suicide assessment and prevention in primary care settings
  • Addresses the clinical realities of working in a primary care setting and how to adapt them to the needs of suicidal patients
  • Covers clinical protocols, legal issues, and risk management
  • Discusses the formation of collaborative relationships with patients and staff
  • Provides brief interventions with suicidal patients and post-crisis strategies
  • Written by leading specialists in behavioral health, primary care, and suicidology
