The Family Doctors: Images and Metaphors of the Family Doctor to Learn Family Medicine $190.00
Authors: José Luis Turabian and Benjamin Perez-Franco (Medico de Familia, Tutor de Residentes, Centro de Salud Poligono Industrial, SESCAM, Toledo, Spain, and others) 
Book Description:
Medicine is often learned through a mechanistic metaphor of biology and a military metaphor of war. However, the conceptual elements and skills that promote the mastery of family medicine, such as contextual knowledge, continuity of care, the clinical interview, comprehensiveness, coordination, and so on, are often difficult to explain and to understand. Furthermore, these fundamental concepts of family medicine have nothing to do with the metaphor of the machine or the metaphor of war. In this book, these concepts are explained through metaphors that are more explanatory, nicer, sweeter, and more playful. Thinking based on metaphors and comparisons is a way of making a concept so suggestive, interesting and surprising that it reaches people more easily.

The value of family medicine lies in its distinctiveness from academic medicine; it is a unique discipline that defines itself in terms of relationships, especially those between the doctor and patient. Family physicians tend to think in terms of individual patients rather than of abstractions and generalizations, and family medicine is based more on the metaphor of an organism rather than that of mechanistic biology. Family medicine is unique in the medical arena in that it transcends the duality of body and mind. Thus, the family doctor should be encouraged to use a non-conventional form when thinking about the problems that are presented in the consultation (for example, thinking on the basis of metaphors).

Book Reviews

"The Family Doctorsjoins the pleasant and simple form medicine and literature. The suggestion of the metaphors with which Turabián and Perez-Franco approach, in a subtle and complete way, the multiple facets of the function of the family doctor, has a cuasi-picassiano point. Certainly, it is an essential book to understand the Family Medicine from another point of view.” - Dr. Alejandro Villarin. Head of Studies. Teaching Unit of Primary Care and Community; Primary Care Management of Toledo

The Family Doctorsis a tour for multiple situations and experiences that the family doctor must learn to handle. It expresses enthusiasm in the defense of the Family Medicine.” - Dr. Teresa Mendez. Health Technician. Teaching Unit of Primary Care and Community; Primary Care Management of Toledo

It's a book that pleasantly surprises the reader by its originality and the apparent clarity of ideas of their authors. Exploration of the essence of the concepts of family medicine is highly interesting from different perspectives. Its innovative structure allows an agile and entertaining reading.” - Dr. Ignacio Párraga Martínez. Editor “Revista clinica de Medicina de Familia”

Jose Luis Turabian y Benjamin Perez Franco are a real masters of Medicine. Their symbiosis multiplies its already extensive clinical and teaching experience, and makes them current references of the Family and Community Medicine in Spain. Now, they present us a fascinating, creative, and funny book, which invites us to reflect on the multiple facets of the family doctor and the boundless tasks that he has to perform in his daily work. An essential book to understand what this excitating specialty is.” - Dr. Francisco Lopez de Castro. Head of Service Training in Specialized Health, Ministry of Health of Castilla La Mancha, Toledo

The Family Doctorsis pleasant, easy reading, capable of attracting the attention of the reader by combining the magic of the knowledge, the observation and the experience, with the problematics of the human relations. It is through its short stories as it transmits us in a clear, brief and concise form the qualities that a good family doctor must have.” - Dr. Blanca Cordero, Medical Coordinator, Health Center Santa Maria de Benquerencia; Primary Care Management of Toledo
