Descript XVIII, 389 p. online resource


Despite a well-publicized shift away from the traditional family structure, the family remains the most basic relational unit in society and the physician's most potent ally. A family orientation in health care can provide a wider understanding of illness and a broader range of solutions than the classic biomedical model. FAMILY-ORIENTED PRIMARY CARE: A MANUAL FOR MEDICAL PROVIDERS offers practical guidance for the physician who would like to take greater advantage of this resource. The result is a readable guide, structured around step -by-step protocols that are vividly illustrated with case studies drawn from the author's extensive collaboration at the University of Rochester School of Medicine
