TOPIC (Task-Oriented Processes in Care) is a breakthrough framework of learning and teaching in ambulatory care. The TOPIC model offers guidelines for optimizing a chronic illness visit, a check-up/preventive visit, a new problem visit, a psychosocial visit, or a visit where a behavior change is recommended. The TOPIC guidelines work with any presenting problem and direct the practitioner to apply both the most current medical knowledge, and the most useful skills and approach to each visit.

This book offers instructors innovative and practical ways to teach medical students and residents how to implement the TOPIC model. The accompanying CD-ROM contains essential teaching handouts, Power Point slide sets, templates, scripts, evaluation forms, video clips, and more.
