Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Chantal A Imbs, DVM (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This handbook for veterinarians and veterinary technicians and staff includes two CD-ROMs.
Purpose: This can be used either as a simple resource or as part of a formal training program to refine the skills of the veterinary team. The aim is to increase the staff's ability to detect and manage health problems and to enable the team to be more effective communicators with each other and with clients.
Audience: This is designed as a training resource for veterinarians, technicians, and staff. Thanks to the CD-ROMs, it is an interactive resource.
Features: The handbook gives paraprofessionals the education and tools necessary to discuss and understand the different disease diagnostic and treatment processes that may be required. It also provides a good background on anatomy and physiology. The concepts of each section are reinforced with interactive clinical cases on the CD-ROMs.
Assessment: This is a useful, user friendly, well illustrated quick reference source for paraprofessionals on general practice subjects. The CD-ROMs, algorithm flowcharts, and glossary are additional valuable learning tools.
