Part 1: Overview

As a first introduction to the rest of the book, this section presents an overview of the logical prescribing process. A simple example of a taxi driver with a cough is followed by an analysis of how the patient's problem was solved. The process of choosing a first-choice treatment is discussed first, followed by a step by step overview of the process of rational treatment. Details of the various steps are given in subsequent chapters.
