Highly accessible, the work has practical approaches to many of the procedures that a rural doctor may provide. Drawing on the acclaimed Occasional Procedure series published by the Canadian Journal of Rural Medicine, this edition has been thoroughly revised adding new procedures and the latest drug information and evidence.

Written by experienced rural doctors for both learners and practicing physicians, this eminently readable volume contains:

  • Over forty anaesthesia, obstetrics, trauma, cardiac, as well as office procedures
  • Hundreds of rich illustrations that guide you step by step
  • All written to the rural context

This outstanding book is an excellent resource for those interested in finding their way through rural procedural care in both office and hospital settings.
