Elsevier Australia has published the highly-anticipated ‘General Practice: The integrative approach’ – a text set to become the definitive Integrative Medicine resource for GPs and students.
Boasting over 1000 pages, this important hardcover is directed at best practice rather than alternative practice, and is written with a focus on prevention and health promotion.
The book is expertly authored by Dr Kerry Phelps, well-known Australian medical practitioner and President of the Australasian Integrative Medicine Association (AIMA), and Dr Craig Hassad of Monash University.
In easy-to-follow detail, the authors address the diagnosis, investigation and management of myriad health issues – all with an eye to integrative medicine.
‘General Practice: The integrative approach’ outlines the various therapeutic options according to the growing integrative medicine evidence base. It 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.
With useful tools like a ready reference herb/drug interaction chart, special icons for easy modality reference, and a unique chapter on medico-legal issues, ‘General Practice: The integrative approach’ is an essential addition to any bookshelf.
