Healthy ageing

Maintaining health and function into older age is a priority for patients, clinicians and policy-makers.


Neurology

The Focus articles in this issue highlight the diagnosis and management of neurological conditions in general practice.


Primary care and neurological disorders

As medical practitioners situated on the forefront of primary care, general practitioners play a crucial part in limiting injury through the use of prevention strategies.


Respiratory tract and sleep disorders

Respiratory tract and sleep disorders – including obstructive sleep apnoea, difficult-to-treat asthma in adults, and insomnia – are commonly encountered in general practice.


Sleep and health

The connection between sleep and health has been recognised for centuries, but it is only relatively recently that the treatment of sleep disorders has developed as a medical specialty.


The heart of the matter

A primary care journal such as AJGP will almost inevitably have individual readers who find some articles much more interesting than others.
