2004 British Medical Association Medical Book of the Year
A practical manual of diabetic footcare/ Michael E Edmonds, Alethea V M Foster, Lee J Sanders. A 'first class text' and 'a practical guide with information and advice which is easy to access. 'The clinical chapters are presented in a structured, colour-coded format to allow easy reference. The text also includes highlighted best clinical practice tips. Each chapter is accompanied by high-quality, full-colour photographs that provide excellent examples of the earliest presenting signs as well as illustrating the step-by-step guidance on treatment. This book is an essential manual for every healthcare professional involved in the care of patients with diabetes.' (Publisher) 'This a first-class text on the management of all aspects of the diabetic foot. It is a practical guide with information and advice, which is easy to access. It takes the reader through the natural history of the diabetic foot from the normal foot and relatively minor pathology to the end stage of infection gangrene and ultimately amputation. The various stages within the book's structure have case studies to highlight the clinical management problems encountered by diabetes foot specialists ... Much of the text is broken up with bullet points, chapters and sub-chapters which allow the reader to pick out information from quick scans of the book. There is liberal use of illustrations throughout the book, which is particularly important as diabetic footcare is a specialty which is particularly reliant on observation. The book also details the 'how to do it' aspects rather than vague reference to what is required. It also uses the published evidence for its recommendations but, where this is lacking, the authors draw on their extensive experience of managing diabetic feet to guide the reader.'
