Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Ender A Akan, B.S., M.D.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a resource guide for patients and their families to help them understand the various clinical sequelae of multiple sclerosis (MS) and the various management issues.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a resource for patients and their families on the management of daily issues associated with multiple sclerosis. The book is worthwhile because multiple sclerosis is a complicated disease with many treatment issues that patients and their caretakers need to understand.
Audience: The book is written for patients and their families. It may also benefit students in the various fields of medicine.
Features: The book covers management and treatment of various problems a patient with MS may encounter. It takes a problem by problem approach and gives tips the patient may use at home. The systemic approach to MS is clear and understandable. It is a good reference for patients who may need to quickly look up and answer a treatment question. The contents also allow the reader to gain independence and control of their disease. The illustrations are not appealing to the eye and could use more completion.
Assessment: This is a high quality publication and a necessary resource for patients and their caretakers to have on hand. It supplements well visits to the physicians any may actually help physicians in the education of patients about the disease.
