This enterprising collection spans the breadth of primary care in multiple ways. Contributions from general practitioners, philosophers, nurses, physiotherapists, dentists, health economists, educationalists, patients and others reflect the rich variety that makes up primary care. Authors embrace the uncertainty inherent in the day-to-day reality of primary care, and practical advice sits alongside heartfelt accounts of issues that challenge practitioners. There is something here for everyone, whether the reader is looking for guidance on duties in primary care, a framework for analysing a difficult consultation, insights into the voice of the patient, or an understanding of the economics of primary care. Wendy Rogers, Professor of Clinical Ethics, Macquarie University With chapters revolving around practical issues and real-world contexts, this Handbook offers much-needed insights?into the ethics of primary healthcare. An international set of contributors from a broad range of areas in ethics and practice address a challenging array of?topics. These range from the issues arising in primary care interactions, to working with different sources of vulnerability among patients,?from?contexts?connected with?teaching and learning, to issues in relation to justice and resources. The book is both interdisciplinary and inter-professional, including not just ‘standard’ philosophical clinical ethics but also approaches using the humanities, clinical empirical research, management theory and much else besides. This practical handbook will be an invaluable resource for anyone who is seeking a better appreciation and understanding of the ethics ‘in’, ‘of’ and ‘for’ primary healthcare. That includes clinicians and commissioners, but also policymakers and academics concerned with primary care ethics. Readers are encouraged to explore and critique the ideas discussed in the 44 chapters; whether or not readers agree with all the authors’ views, this volume aims to?inform, educate and, in many cases, inspire.

Primary care is complex, unpredictable, and requires a biopsychosocial orientation. An indispensable teaching resource, Primary Care Interviewing: Learning Through Role Play thoroughly details how to use role play to teach the basics and more complex aspects of medical interviewing skills to trainee clinicians. Role playing is ideally suited to teach clinicians how to interview and relate to patients, and this unique and concise title includes not only sample role plays and dialog but also a wealth of accompanying online video role plays to enhance the learning process. Part one presents how to teach basic interviewing skills needed for effective communication, such as joining, promoting self- awareness, open-ended communication, dealing with emotions, structuring skills, and asking questions to uncover concerns and related beliefs, or theories of illness. Part two addresses the teaching of specific, more complex interviewing skills, such as addressing a patient’s mental health issues, sexual health, somatic conditions, and giving bad news.

General practitioners and other primary care professionals have a leading role in contemporary health care, which Trisha Greenhalgh explores in this highly praised new text. She provides perceptive and engaging insights into primary health care, focussing on: • its intellectual roots • its impact on the individual, the family and the community • the role of the multidisciplinary team • contemporary topics such as homelessness, ethnic health and electronic records. Concise summaries, highlighted boxes, extensive referencing and a dedicated section on effective learning make this essential reading for postgraduate students, tutors and researchers in primary care. ___ From the foreword by Julian Tudor Hart “Trish Greenhalgh, in her frequent columns in the British Medical Journal…more than any other medical journalist spoke to her fellow GPs in the language of experience, but never without linking this to our expanding knowledge from the whole of human science. When I compare the outlines of primary care so lucidly presented in this wonderful book, obviously derived from rich experience of real teaching and learning, with the grand guignol theatre of London medical schools when I was a student 1947-52, the advance is stunning.” ___ "Trish Greenhalgh is one of the international stars of general practice and a very clever thinker. This new book is a wonderful resource for primary health care and general practice. Every general practice registrar should read this book and so should every general practice teacher and primary care researcher." Professor Michael Kidd, Head of the Department of General Practice, University of Sydney and Immediate Past President of The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners “This important new book by one of primary care's most accomplished authors sets out clearly the academic basis for further developments in primary health care. Health systems will only function effectively if they recognise the importance of high quality primary care so I strongly recommend this book to students, teachers, researchers, practitioners and policy makers.” Professor Martin Marshall, Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health, UK
