In The Press
This latest edition offers a new approach to the management of minor illness, the most obvious difference from previous editions being the reformatting of the book to mirror the structure of the British National Formulary. The book also uses the problem-based learning approach where minor illnesses are discussed in the context of case studies.
A pharmacist and a general medical practitioner or dietitian responds to the case. This illustrates the similarities and differences in approach by two different healthcare professionals.
Each chapter ends with a series of self-assessment questions, the styles of which reflect those encountered in university or professional examinations.
The book is well structured and easy to use. The tables are clear and concise and the photographs and illustrations are of the highest quality. It should be read by pharmacy undergraduates and preregistration trainees, and it will also be of great value to community pharmacists.
