Doody’s Review Service reviews health science books. They have just given my book International Perspectives on Primary Care Research five stars, with a score 100/100. This is very pleasing, as only about 5% of books get 5*s.
Reviewer: Vincent Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Published on behalf of the World Organization of Family Doctors, this book has a unique perspective, recognizing the differences in medical care throughout the world.
It reviews the needs of primary care in different areas of the world and brings to light some of the areas that need research and further study specific to a particular region.
The audience is extensive, including researchers both in the region and internationally, nongovernmental organization administrators, researchers and philanthropists helping to fund the research, and governments of developing nations that are able and willing to fund the research supporting the initiatives suggested in the book.
The book first addresses the basic question of what primary care research is and quickly moves on to the contributions of primary care research to health and health systems. A section details who currently is involved in primary care research, such as cross-nation research organizations and regional/national organizations. The book makes a significant point that the research needed in developed nations is significantly different that that needed in developing nations, yet these are not mutually exclusive as one area could greatly assist the other through cooperative ventures.
This book takes a different approach to research, focusing that what research is valued in one region, specialty and subspecialty research, may not have the same value in another because different regions/nations have different primary care research needs. This is an extraordinarily important book for policy makers, philanthropists, nongovernmental organizations, and governments of all sizes.
