: In this ground-breaking new work, Patrick J McEvoy connects with healthcare professionals, patients and illness to presenting an entirely new way to address chronic disease management. By reflecting on the very nature of chronic disease, rather than focusing on its consequences, the book sheds new light on the complex realities of general practice, explaining the intricacies of community medicine, and its relationship with both sociology and epidemiology. Highly practical in its approach, the book offers a generic paradigm of chronic disease, a trajectory-based model of clinical management and a curriculum for chronic care. It provides thought-provoking reading for all health and social care students and professionals, post-graduate trainees in General Practice and their trainers seeking inspirational new ways to manage chronic disease.
