Primary care medicine is the new frontier in medicine. Every nation in the world has recognized the necessity to deliver personal and primary care to its people. This includes first-contact care, care based in a positive and caring personal rela tionship, care by a single healthcare provider for the majority of the patient's prob lems, coordination of all care by the patient's personal provider, advocacy for the patient by the provider, the provision of preventive care and psychosocial care, as well as care for episodes of acute and chronic illness. These facets of care work most effectively when they are embedded in a coherent integrated approach. The support for primary care derives from several significant trends. First, technologically based care costs have rocketed beyond reason or availability, occurring in the face of exploding populations and diminishing real resources in many parts of the world, even in the wealthier nations. Simultaneously, the primary care disciplines-general internal medicine and pediatrics and family medicine-have matured significantly. They have become viable alternatives to the specialty approach to care with its potential dehumanization, coordination problems, and increased cost.

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.

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.
