by Soweto Trust for Nurse Clinical Training
The manual supports the training and development of primary health care practitioners, and provides a ready and accessible resource at clinics, especially in rural areas. It is an important resource for health care personnel working in remote or isolated areas where access to assistance is not available. It has been written for clinic personnel, family practitioners, training hospitals, medical students, nursing colleges and dispensing pharmacists. The manual was specifically edited to ensure that all medical terminology is accurate, and that language and style make the information easy to access. This edition of the manual has updated the management of many conditions, particularly HIV and AIDS, and has again incorporated most of the drugs used in the Essential Drug List for Primary Health Care.
