There are many myths when it comes to successful treatments for Peripheral Neuropathy; in fact, most patients are not aware that there are over 100 different forms of neuropathy; and, just as many reasons for its development. Unfortunately, other than Alcohol/Drug related neuropathy or Traumatic injury neuropathy, most neuropathies are incurable! But, that doesn't mean that there are no treatments for the pain, numbness, burning, tingling, edema and cramping which many neuropathies hold. This book covers many of the so-called "myths" that so many patients are willing to try, as well as actual treatments, both electronic and nutritional, which actual work to reduce symptoms; and, is put together by the nation's first, certified Neuropathist, James Skaug.

Important strides have been made in understanding the pathophysiologic basis of many inflammatory conditions in recent years, but rheumatology remains a discipline in which diagnosis is rooted in the medical history skillfully extracted from the patient, the careful physical examination, and the discriminating use of laboratory tests and imaging. Moreover, selection of the most appropriate therapy for patients with rheumatic diseases also remains heavily reliant upon clinical experience. Medical disciplines such as rheumatology that depend significantly upon clinical wisdom are prone to the development of systems of ‘Pearls’ and ‘Myths,’ related to the diseases they call their own, a ‘Pearl’ being a nugget of truth about the diagnosis or treatment of a particular disease that has been gained by dint of clinical experience and a ‘Myth’ being a commonly held belief that influences the practice of many clinicians – but is false. This book will pool together the clinical wisdom of seasoned, expert rheumatologists who participate in the care of patients with autoimmune diseases, systemic inflammatory disorders, and all other rheumatic conditions.

Designated a Doody's Core Title! "This is an excellent teaching guide and resource manual for instructors, gerontological nursing students, and practicing nurses and social workers who wish to learn more about geriatric concerns and care. It will be kept by nursing students long after they graduate as a guide to resources that will be valuable throughout their nursing careers. As a home care nurse working mainly with the geriatric community, I found the resources helpful in my practice. As an instructor, I found the book to be a very useful guide for teaching geriatrics." Score: 90, 4 Stars. -Doody's Medical Reviews "Donna Bowles's Gerontology Nursing Case Studies is a unique volume that effectively addresses the lack of gerontology case studies for use with undergraduate nursing students. Case studies are a pedagogically powerful approach to active learning that offer opportunities to apply content to clinical practice."--The Gerontologist "The case narrative approach of this book promotes active learning that is more meaningful to students (and practicing nurses) and more likely to increase the transfer of evidence into practice. An excellent resource for faculty (staff educators) to facilitate critical learning skills." Liz Capezuti, PhD, RN, FAAN Dr. John W. Rowe Professor in Successful Aging Co-Director, Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing New York University College of Nursing "This is a terrific text that provides nurses and other health care providers [with] good basic information about clinical problems and challenges we face in providing care to older adults. It should be considered required reading in all undergraduate programs." --From the foreword by Barbara Resnick, PhD, CRNP, FAAN, FAANP Professor, University of Maryland School of Nursing Sonya Ziporkin Gershowitz Chair in Gerontology At the heart of this unique volume are 100 case studies of older adults that address nearly every issue-physical, mental, and psychosocial-that may confront health care providers who work with the aging population. These case studies, culled from contributors with several centuries' worth of combined nursing expertise, are designed to guide nursing students in the development of interventions that encompass both complementary and alternative health strategies. Exercises interspersed throughout each case study are designed to foster critical thinking and decision-making skills. These case narratives provide a holistic approach to problem solving in regard to political, ethical, and legal issues; loss and end-of-life issues; elder abuse; depression, addiction and suicide; self-esteem and family relationships; sexuality; age-related health issues; cognitive impairment; cultural diversity as it relates to aging; pain management; and sleep disturbances. The volume also addresses such contemporary psychosocial issues as gambling addiction, hoarding behavior, emergency preparedness, the aging driver, and long-distance caregiving. Key Features: Provides 100 evidence-based case studies Cultivates development of critical thinking and decision-making skills Features realistic, contemporary scenarios Designed for use across the gerontology nursing curriculum Geared for AACN and NLN Accreditation Organized according to the needs of actual clinical settings

Winner of ‘BMA Book of the Year’ in 2004 Judges’ summary of the book: “This is a first-class text on the management of all aspects of the diabetic foot. It is a practical guide with information and advice, which is easy to access. It takes the reader through the natural history of the diabetic foot from the normal foot and relatively minor pathology to the end stage of infection, gangrene and ultimately amputation. The various stages with the book’s structure have case studies to highlight the clinical management problems encountered by diabetes foot specialists....Much of the text is broken up with bullet points, chapters and sub-chapters which allow the reader to pick out information from quick scans of the book. There is liberal use of illustrations throughout the book, which is particularly important as diabetic footcare is a specialty which is particularly reliant on observation. The book also details the ‘how to do it’ aspects rather than vague reference to what is required. It also uses the published evidence for its recommendations but, where this is lacking, the authors draw on their extensive experience of managing diabetic feet to guide the reader.” This book is a practical clinical manual for the diagnosis, treatment - both medical and surgical - and the long-term care of foot problems in people with diabetes. The authors are world-renowned experts in this subject and they present the internationally recognized best practice. The clinical chapters are presented in a structured, color-coded format to allow easy reference. The text also includes highlighted best clinical practice tips. Each chapter is accompanied by high-quality, full-color photographs that provide excellent examples of the earliest presenting signs as well as illustrating the step-by-step guidance on treatment. This book is an essential manual for every healthcare professional involved in the care of patients with diabetes.

This book is intended for medical students, residents, and fellows, as well as medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgeons, general practitioners, nurses and allied health workers. Complete with case vignettes, key points, and sidebar summaries to further assist readers using practical tips and tricks, this textbook provides current information on the management and prevention of cancer-related side effects, referring to up-to-date sources that are useful for conducting further research. It also introduces new topics, such as financial toxicity and complementary medicine, as well as covering the new side effects of targeted therapies not covered in the last edition. Additionally, MASCC Textbook of Cancer Supportive Care and Survivorship, 2nd edition assembles international, multidisciplinary experts who focus on a comprehensive range of symptoms and side effects associated with cancer and its treatment. Over the last five years, much progress has been made in supportive care, helping people cope with the symptoms of cancer and cancer treatment and addressing the physical and psychosocial matters of survivorship prior to, during, and after anticancer treatment. This is central to a patient’s wellbeing and the MASCC Textbook of Cancer Supportive Care and Survivorship, 2nd edition, explores not only the diagnosis and treatment, but also the increasingly recognized complex and ongoing symptoms experienced by long term cancer survivors. Significant advances have been made, designing strategies to manage the side effects and symptoms of treatment and to prevent them from occurring, maximizing the person’s ability to pursue daily activities. Reviews of the 1st edition: “This book reviews the management of cancer symptoms in patients and the side effects and late effects of treatment. The focus of the book is on supportive care and survivorship of cancer patients...The book covers symptomatology, medication and treatment, and system function of patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy...Photographs and algorithm charts further illustrate key points. This outstanding book is thorough in its explanations and easy to follow.” (Arlenda C. Thompson, Doody’s Review Service, January, 2011)
