  • 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.
