Emphasizing holistic philosophy, this important book encourages practitioners to surpass treatment based strictly on a one-dimensional, biomedical assessment of their patients. Among the topics covered are: conceptualizations of ill-health; consideration of the patient as an individual; the establishment of goals and cooperative strategy between physician and patient; and the realistic allocation of time, energy, and other resources of the health care provider.
