As the key figure in promoting patients' health and prevention of disease, the primary care provider can play a major role in patient engagement, self-management, and behavior change. Prevention Practice in Primary Care systematically explores state-of-the-art practical approaches to effective prevention in primary care. Guided by theory and evidence, the book reviews approaches to risk factor identification and modification for the major causes of mortality in adulthood, including cancer, stroke, and cardiovascular disease. Topical coverage in this book includes: * the practical applications of genomics and proteomics to personalizing prevention * transformative approaches to practice change, including the patient-centered medical home, academic detailing, and practice facilitation Dshow more

Review quote

"As the health care system increasingly shifts to new care delivery models like the medical home and accountable care organizations, this important book digs deep into how primary care practice may address prevention of multiple chronic diseases, and personalize care across populations. As is true with good science, this book builds upon theoretical models to articulate a 'systems science' that addresses multiple levels of influence in the U.S. health care system. With keen insight, the book identifies gaps in preventive care, highlights the pressing needs of vulnerable populations, and describes interventions that can be implemented in primary care. --David Haggstrom, MD, general internist, Center for Health Information and Communication, VA Health Services Research and Development Service, Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center; Indiana University School of Medicine; Regenstrief Institute, Indianapolis, Indiana"Sheinfeld Gorin has assembled an impressive list of co-authors, all experts in their field with valuable insights and pearls of wisdom to share about how to better deliver preventive care. Prevention Practice in Primary Care is a necessary resource for the primary care physician." --Alex Krist, MD, MPH, Associate Professor, Department of Family Medicine and Population Health, Virginia Commonwealth University"Prevention is no easy undertaking, especially with the complex and changing nature of the American health care system. Prevention Practice in Primary Care tackles these challenges head-on to offer practical, high-quality solutions for delivering cost-effective and patient-focused care. It is a must-read for thinking public health professionals who need workable strategies for reducing the ravages of preventable diseases." --Cheryl Healton, DrPH, Dean and Director, NYU Global Institute of Public Health"This is an interesting book for policy makers and students of the health industry..." --Doody's Health Sciences Book Reviewshow more
