From the PublisherBMA Book awards 2008 - Highly Commended
"Wide ranging with useful practical advice on difficult aspects of immigrant medicine - especially the areas of communication and how to navigate cultural boundaries. The material covered goes from parasitic disorders through to psychiatric problems. The section on womens' reproductive health is very useful. This is an excellent book to have around to dip into for advice. I shall put my copy in our hospital library."
Travel Medicine encompasses a wide range of topics from the prevention of disease and health of international travellers to more exotics such as wilderness medicine, altitude medicine, aviation and space medicine. This is reflected in this timely, elegant, informative and comprehensive volume on immigrant medicine. No topic seems to have escaped the net. The text is well-illustrated, usually in colour, with clear and comprehensive charts and tables. This is a gem of a book, which is strongly recommended as essential reading for all physicians, laboratory and public health workers.
