Overview

As medicine becomes more specialized, doctors working in general medicine and general practice can quickly lose touch with advances occurring in other fields. Never having heard of an investigation, or carrying dated misconceptions as to a prognosis can be frustrating at best, and dangerous at worst. The aim of this book is to strike a balance between refreshing old knowledge and updating the reader on significant advances that have occurred in a particular specialty, with this in mind each chapter is written by a trainee and a specialist in the relevant area.

The content will be of interest to consultants and trainees in the medical specialties, general practitioners, and medical students. At times entertaining, irreverant and controversial, this is not a book to be left nestling in the pocket of a white coat or gathering dust on a shelf.
