Tomorrow's general practitioners will inhabit a world of ever greater sophistication and complexity. New skills will be demanded to manage the changing expectations of patients and governments. In an age of information overload, new patterns of creative, intelligent working will need to develop. This book provides a framework, illustrated by practical examples, for such a career path to develop and be supported. It examines a number of innovative schemes which highlight varied ways forward, both for training and personal enrichment. It addresses not only the need of today's young doctors, but also the question of how to equip all general practitioners for the challenges of the future.
Introduction. Events, Dear Boy…With a small 'p'. The road from nowhere to nothing. The case of blue-bottomed sheep. Excuse me, Doctor, I'm talking to you! Values, authentic and pure?' A polished razor keen. When a new book is published.. Two sacred cows. Nothing either good or bad. The little mushroom and the blighted twin.
