This book reviews eight topics including chronic medical issues like chronic fatigue syndrome, the response of primary care clinicians to global pandemics, and how patients and physicians are symbolized in comics. From top experts in the field, this book will improve your ability to practice primary care and to appreciate the broad demands placed upon primary care clinicians.
