About this product
- DescriptionFor the past two decades or more traditional general practice consultation appointment periods have been ten minutes. In any one day a general practitioner may have thirty or more consultations. This presents many challenges and requires the general practitioner to be focussed and efficient with time. This book brings together a series of useful articles on a range of conditions and presentations that may be encountered during a consultation in primary care. Examples include the key consultation issues in an elderly person with memory loss, a child with a lump in their neck, a woman with a suspected premature mepause and someone with renal colic. Some of these presentations may also be encountered in out of hours centres or accident and emergency departments and the same consultation information will be useful.
