Description:

Based on the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force's newly revised Guide to Clinical Preventive Services, this thoroughly updated handbook offers physicians practical suggestions for risk assessment, disease prevention, and health promotion. Chapters examine health behaviors and risk factors such as exercise, nutrition, tobacco use, substance use, sexually transmitted infections, and depression and provide advice on gathering information from the patient, ordering screening tests, prescribing appropriate treatments, and designing a personalized health maintenance plan. This edition includes new chapters on electronic medical records and reimbursement for clinical preventive services and updated patient resource materials and instructions.
