Reviews

  • The fourth edition of this popular resource for family practice is the effort of widely recognized authors and panels of more than 170 reviewers, all orchestrated under the editing guidance of Drs Michael Evans and James Meuser of the University of Toronto’s Centre for Effective Practice. This edition continues to maintain the objective of Dr Ken Marshall’s first 3 editions: providing practitioners with concise, up-to-date, evidence-based or reference-based information about most problems encountered in an outpatient general practice.

    This is not a textbook covering all aspects of medical conditions; rather, it is a sourcebook covering the relevant and most current practical aspects of medical problems and informing clinical judgment. The index found at the back of the book, as well as the indexes found on the front and back covers, allow practitioners to find information quickly. Tables are used judiciously. The generic names of medications are used with the trade names appearing in parentheses.

    As a part-time family practitioner, I have used this reference at the end of a clinical session to review data needed to address patients’ concerns that I encountered on that particular day. It has helped me revalidate my own knowledge and offered possible further exploration when I next see patients with such conditions. The authors have met their objectives and have been true to the original intent of the books. I would recommend it to all busy clinicians, as well as family medicine residents.
