Highly Commended (Public Health category), BMA Awards 2005
This innovative resource is a "bridge" between an introductory survey text and a very large, comprehensive reference designed for the specialist, while retaining the best qualities of each. Its comprehensive, concisely presented coverage encompasses all aspects of the diagnosis, treatment, and management of patients with sexually transmitted infections and HIV. Evidence-based treatment options are presented whenever possible, and references direct readers to more in-depth sources. Full-color illustrations and photographs, bulleted lists, and tables make information easy to access and bring the text to life.

• Presents important information in a quick-access format with bulleted lists, boxes, and tables.
• Offers evidence-based treatment options, with references, wherever possible.
• Includes an outstanding collection of full-color illustrations and photographs.
• Provides relevant case histories and associated questions at the end of each chapter, to reinforce knowledge and understanding.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This is an excellent book for anyone with an interest in sexual health, especially at the beginning of your career. It's very readable and coherently laid-out. The case histories and self-assesment make it a potentially useful learning and teaching tool[.]
BMA Awards 2005

The text deals in detail with the most common conditions seen in GUM clinics...every chapter also has a PBL-style self-assessment questions at the end, with clear and succinct answers. The layout and presentation is clear, with well thought-out diagrams and flow-charts. Good use of colour makes it user friendly as does the fact that it is fully indexed . A novel inclusion in the chapter on anti-retroviral therapy are tables with photographs of every drug mentioned...you'll be able to recognise the drug when you eventually do come across it!
