Abstract / Description of output

Storylines of Family Medicine is a 12-part series of thematically linked mini-essays with accompanying illustrations that explore the many dimensions of family medicine as interpreted by individual family physicians and medical educators in the USA and elsewhere around the world. In ‘VIII: clinical approaches’, authors address the following themes: ‘Evaluation, diagnosis and management I—toward a working diagnosis’, ‘Evaluation, diagnosis and management II—process steps’, ‘Interweaving integrative medicine and family medicine’, ‘Halfway—the art of clinical judgment’, ‘Seamless integration in family medicine—team-based care’, ‘Technology—uncovering stories from noise’ and ‘Caring for patients with multiple long-term conditions’. May readers recognise in these essays the uniqueness of a family medicine approach to care.
