For this book I was the Associate Editor to Stephen Woolf, MD, MPH, Editor, with Evonne Kaplan-Liss, MD, MPH, Managing Editor. It is the 2nd edition of the first text in preventive medicine which is organized around the health-risk factors with which patients actually present to health care practitioners. Written by clinicians for clinicians, with a number of new expert authors for the 2nd edition, the book lays out the details on gathering information from the patient, designing a personalized health maintenance plan, facilitating behavior change, and the work-up of abnormal results from screening tests. It also explains how to organize the practice and clinic to deliver quality preventive care and to obtain reimbursement. Chapters, for example, provide practical guidance on how to counsel patients about exercise, nutrition, tobacco use, substance use, sexually transmitted infections, and dealing with depression. As well, it includes chapters on evidence-based screening tests and immunization, practice redesign, the use of electronic medical records, reimbursement, and on health promotion and disease prevention for children and adolescents. With this second edition there is a companion Website, www.healthpromodisprev.com, that features fully searchable text online, providing a fast, flexible multimedia library that is being updated continually.
