This brand new title addresses the complex issues faced by primary health care practitioners in treating and managing patients with ‘medically unexplained symptoms’. It aims to develop guidelines and principles to help identify patients with medically unexplained symptoms, as they are typically underdiagnosed, and to manage symptoms more effectively with active patient involvement.
ABC of Medically Unexplained Symptoms is a clear and practical guide to the identification and management of patients with symptoms not adequately explained by disease. It provides an overview of general principles and techniques and discusses in detail specic common symptoms such as headache, pain, breathlessness, fatigue and dizziness. It covers vital information on the assessment of symptoms, provides constructive explanations, and describes cognitive, behavioural and pharmacological approaches to treatment. Recognising the particular challenges that medically unexplained symptoms represent, it explains how to communicate with patients and involve them in managing their own symptoms.
Written by an expert author team, ABC of Medically Unexplained Symptoms is ideal for general practitioners, practice nurses and specialist nurses, medical students and others working within primary care settings.
“The major contribution this monograph makes is to recognize that not all symptoms are readily explainable by a clear diagnosis. To young clinicians, this can be especially important as they face both the straightforward diagnosis and the conundrum. It is an easy read and another tool for working with primary care patients. ” (Doody’s, 30 August 2013)
Unfortunately new medical diseases continue to occur and so medical research continues to this very day. We don’t know every single thing about every possible disease that will ever exist. We are not finished. We cannot say that if no test shows an abnormal result, then the problem is in your head. Medical science actually evolved past thinking this some time ago. It seems like more of a history book on how archaic and cruel medicine once was. This is NOT medicine today.
