A comprehensive medical textbook taking a holistic approach to contemporary general practice

This e-book takes an integrative approach to the diagnosis, investigation and management of health issues in the general practice environment.

General Practice: The integrative approach e-book version covers the philosophy underpinning modern-day general practice, including primary and secondary prevention as well as acute and chronic disease management.

This comprehensive e-book informs doctors of potential treatment and prevention options, as well as possible pitfalls, according to the growing integrative medicine evidence base.

The first section of General Practice: The integrative approach e-book lays the foundations of integrative medicine while the second examines important medical conditions in a systems-based approach.

Each chapter in this valuable health resource outlines required medical and consulting knowledge, while discussing physiology and pharmacological management plans of systems-based conditions.

An evidence-based discussion of the available therapeutic options for the treatment of associated factors follows. This helps medical practitioners adapt their approach for individual patient needs.

General Practice: The integrative approach e-book features contributions from experts in Chinese medicine, herbal medicine, nutritional medicine, naturopathy, and exercise therapy - all of whom incorporate their expertise into management plans that utilise multiple therapeutic modalities to achieve the best clinical outcome.
