The new, 3rd edition of The Behavioral Sciences and Health Care, edited by O.J. Sahler, Jack Carr, Julia Frank, and João Nunes, was released April 2012. This revision has been streamlined to allow for several new chapters, such as an in-depth look at provider impairment as well as updates on obesity, palliative care, and complementary medicine. In addition, the 350+ question-and-answer review section continues to provide concise discussions of specific topics that supplement the text.

Written for medical students, this textbook provides succinct information on the behavioral, social, and psychological sciences relevant to health and wellness.
