A Doody's Core Title for 2011! Patient Education is an essential aid for general practitioners and health, community and medical workers to educate their patients on common medical conditions. Unique in concept when it was first published in 1992, it is now one of the most popular patient education materials used by Australian GPs and has set the standard for patient education material in Australia. Written in simple, non-technical language, these practical information sheets can be given to patients by their GPs and health practitioners to help them understand and manage their medical conditions. Providing only essential information in a concise and user-friendly format, this book has proven to be an excellent educational tool for patients. Each condition is presented on one page so it can be easily photocopied and distributed to patients. The book covers a broad cross-section of ailments, ranging from bow legs and snoring, to issues such as COPD, hypertension and child immunisations. Now in its fifth edition, this highly practical medical title has been thoroughly updated and revised. It includes 51 new conditions, making this a comprehensive collection of over 300 conditions GPs treat across the lifespan. This includes both medical and topical social issues such as: -- breastfeeding -- postnatal depression -- meningococcal meningitis -- prostate problems -- osteoarthritis -- hypertension -- anxiety
