Rheumatic conditions are common in both general and hospital practice; a primary feature of many multi-system illnesses, and in the context of injury, age-related change, and psychological distress. This handbook provides practical advice, guidance, and key clinical facts to help you provide the best care for your patients. Practically structured, the handbook focuses first on presenting symptoms, and then considers key diseases, emergencies, and rare diseases in more detail, finishing with a comprehensive account of assessment, guidelines, and treatment options including the latest advances in biological therapy. It provides practical guidelines on the management and diagnosis of patients with acute and chronic musculoskeletal disease. Colour plates and line drawings are present throughout along with tables of key information.
Taking a clinical, evidence-based approach, written by experts, and presented in a clear, practical, bullet-point style for rapid reference, this handbook will be your constant companion and a joy to use.
Readership: Rheumatology trainees and consultants, orthopaedic surgeons, and GPs with a special interest in musculoskeletal disease and musculoskeletal medicine. It will also be of interest to specialist nurse practitioners, clinical medical students, and all those who want a compact but thorough guide to musculoskeletal disease.Authors: Alan Hakim, Gavin Clunie, InamHaq
