PACK Global Adult 2016 eBook
The Practical Approach to Care Kit - PACK Global Adult - is a comprehensive guide used for the primary care of the adult. It uses simple algorithms to evaluate and treat the patient with common symptoms and a standardised checklist format to care for the patient with a chronic condition. It supports the clinician to integrate the care of the patient with multiple problems and wherever possible prompts the diagnosis of priority chronic conditions.
Designed to support primary health care delivery in low and middle income country settings where the HIV and TB burden is significant, PACK Global Adult covers infectious diseases as well as non-communicable diseases, women’s health, mental health and palliative care. Its recommendations are both evidence-based and pragmatic, aligning with BMJ’s Best Practice as well as the latest World Health Organisation guidelines.
