Minor Illness or Major Disease is a well-established undergraduate textbook covering the diagnosis and management of the illnesses and diseases frequently encountered in community pharmacy practice. It aids the pharmacist in differentiating between minor illnesses which can be safely managed in the pharmacy and major diseases that require referral to a medical practitioner.
This new edition has been completely revised and restructured by a new team of authors with a foreword by all four UK chief pharmaceutical officers. The fifth edition: arranges the illnesses in BNF chapter order to facilitate easy cross reference; includes a chapter on nutrition; utilises a problem-based learning approach; has trigger cases, management options, pharmacists and General Practitioner opinions, self assessment questions, summary of key points and key referral criteria.
Minor Illness or Major Disease is an invaluable textbook for pharmacy undergraduate and pre-registration students and also serves as an essential aid to all community pharmacists.
