Primary Care Psychology Hardback
Edited by Robert G. Frank, Susan H. McDaniel, James H. Bray, Margaret Heldring
Primary Care Psychology examines the essential role that psychology plays in the delivery of primary care. Because psychological and behavioural interventions are natural complements to primary care, psychology is poised to become a full partner in the health profession.
This volume brings together the leading researchers, scholars and practitioners to create a thorough and integrated manual about the major topics in primary care psychology.
Chapters provide detailed descriptions of procedures that successfully implement theory, practical analysis of clinical and research implications, comprehensive discussions about the provision of care within special populations, critical examinations of the effect that health policy has on practice and resource allocation, and helpful illustrations and case studies.
