Brian Addison, Alyson Brown, Ruth Edwards, Gwen Gray are from the School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, Faculty of Health and Social Care, Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, UK.

Minor Illness or Major Disease discusses in detail the diagnosis and management of frequently encountered ailments in community pharmacy practice. As well as being a well-established undergraduate textbook, this book aims to aid pharmacists with differentiating between a minor illness and a major disease that would need immediate referral to a medical practitioner.

This sixth edition has been thoroughly revised with updated advice and up to date information about pharmacy medicines. In addition it also:
  • Utilises a problem-based learning approach with case studies throughout
  • Includes trigger cases, management options, pharmacist and general practitioner opinions, self-assessment questions, summary of key points and key referral criteria
  • Carries a further reading section at the end of most chapters, focusing on reviews and evidence of the efficacy of over-the-counter medicines.
Minor Illness or Major Disease is essential reading for pharmacy undergraduates and pre-registration students. It is also invaluable for community pharmacists.
