Overview

Handheld computers, or PDAs, are computers small enough to hold in your hand or fit into your pocket. Smartphones are PDAs which also allow the user to make and receive phone calls. For doctors, PDAs are possibly the most clinically appropriate of all the computer devices created. This is an essential guide for doctors wishing to maximise the potential of their PDA or smartphones and is the only book available to address the specific needs of doctors in relation to PDAs and smartphones. The Doctor's PDA & Smartphone Handbook is a step by step guide which introduces readers to the basics of PDAs. Comprehensive in its approach and easily accessible to those with no technical knowledge, the first few chapters demonstrate how the devices are used and how effective they can be in day-to-day clinical care and in training activities. Communication and sharing data and clinical information is enhanced if the full team is equipped with PDAs, and later chapters discuss more advanced uses and issues that should be considered if planning to equip the whole team. The text is accompanied by invaluable teaching videos and vignettes illustrating how teaching points covered in each chapter can be applied to realistic scenarios.
