The first two editions were published in 1997 and 2003; this third edition is substantially overhauled and is published under a slightly altered title (the old title was Foundations for Osteopathic Medicine. The intended audience includes both students and practitioners; but non-osteopathic physicians could also benefit from an understanding of the discipline's approach and insights pertaining to health and holistic functioning. Initial chapters offer overviews of the profession, including philosophy, history, education and regulation, and international practice. Following are chapters on the basic sciences, including the five models of osteopathic treatment, concepts of anatomy, the fascial systems, somatic dysfunction, and physiological rhythms, among other topics. A large section of chapters on the patient encounter address topics that include mind-body medicine, spirituality and health care, end of life care, and evidence-based medicine. Following is coverage of body regions and manipulative treatment (both traditional and contemporary approaches), patient management, and approaches to research. The text is published under the auspices of the American Osteopathic Association. Editor Chila is affiliated with the College of Osteopathic Medicine, Ohio University. Online access is included with purchase. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
