Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Leslie Lessard, BA (George Washington University)
Description: This book covers disorders in communication, hearing, balance, and swallowing in the HIV/AIDS population and provides a basic overview of HIV/AIDS from several perspectives: global, pathology, diagnosis, and management.
Purpose: The authors highlight the importance of treating communication-related disorders in the HIV/AIDS population, a topic they consider neglected. They cover ethical considerations, psychosocial impacts, and infection control related to these communication disorders in this population.
Audience: The intended audience includes speech-language pathologists, audiologists, otolaryngologists, primary care physicians, and nurses who provide services to persons living with HIV/AIDS. The book is written appropriately for the target audience with a few exceptions. The basic introduction to a disorder that opens each chapter would not be sufficient if, for example, a primary care physician or nurse was unfamiliar with the disorder. The overview of HIV/AIDS that spans the first few chapters of the book is heavy with medical jargon, which may slow down readers who are new to the care of persons with HIV/AIDS.
Features: After the basic introduction to a disorder, each chapter proceeds with a discussion of such areas such as prevalence, assessment, diagnosis, intervention, and treatment considerations. Furthermore, for each disorder there is a dedicated chapter for both the adult and child population. This distinction allows the reader to draw conclusions accounting for age, a confounding factor. The index is composed of key words, making it easy to find a given topic, disorder, and/or medical term. References are listed at the end of each chapter which allows readers to easily find related work for the disorders.
Assessment: This is the first comprehensive work that addresses communication, hearing, balance, and swallowing disorders in persons living with HIV/AIDS. It also serves as a useful overview of the disease and contains important information for one just beginning to work with persons living with HIV/AIDS. The book pulls together compelling statistics, personal experience, and theory succinctly and thoughtfully.
