Oxford Handbook of Genitourinary Medicine, HIV and AIDS Summary

Oxford Handbook of Genitourinary Medicine, HIV and AIDS by Richard Pattman

Genitourinary medicine (GUM) is an expanding specialty which is primarily related to the treatment and prevention of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). A number of GUM departments also offer other sexual health services such as contraception, sexual dysfunction and health promotion. Services are provided by multidisciplinary teams which include doctors, nurses, health advisers (who carry out partner notification and counselling), receptionists, laboratory staff and secretarial support. The Oxford Handbook of Genitourinary Medicine HIV and AIDS provides practical, evidence-based information on the specialty, covering medico-legal, ethical, and procedural issues. The first section deals with routine management, special situations and clinical and laboratory processes. The second section covers genitourinary conditions in a disease-orientated style, including sexually transmitted diseases and other genitourinary problems. The third section on HIV provides a contemporary epidemiological overview of this infection, basic viral biology and pathogenesis, a disease-orientated description of conditions both directly related and opportunistic, and their management, and data on special situations such as pregnancy.

Oxford Handbook of Genitourinary Medicine, HIV and AIDS Reviews

In summary, I found the handbook to be comprehensive, current and a useful reference source for both the DFFP/STIF and DipGUM. In addition, it is evidence based and well resourced. Any health care professional working in sexual health or related specialties will find this an excellent guide. Journal of Family Planning and Reproductive Health Care ... this book is an excellent portable resource. I would recommend it for senior medical students and practitioners who have special interest in GU/HIV, infectious diseases or microbiology. Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy ... a welcome addition to the Oxford range, and will certainly deserve to be in the library of every GU clinic and in the pocket of every practitioner in the specialty. BMJ Careers The long term utility of this book is assured as it fits a niche snugly, aiming itself not only at doctors but also at allied healthcare professionals working in the field, including specialist nurses and health advisers.
