0 Reviews
The papers included in this volume provide a fascinating review of contemporary pathology, diagnostic techniques, management approaches and pharmacological interventions. They are based on the popular Advanced Medicine conference organised annually by the Royal College of Physicians which aims to present 'the latest cutting edge advances in clinical medicine, supported by improved understanding of disease mechanisms'. Each chapter, by an eminent physician from one of a variety of specialties included, is followed by self-assessment questions, which allow the reader to ensure they have fully absorbed and correctly understood the chapter's key messages. Whether the reader's specific interest lies in, for example, 'Attacking the disease spiral in COPD', New drugs for diabetes' or Advances in Parkinson's disease' - to name but a few of the topics covered - the remainder of the book will provide them with an informative summary of advances in other fields of medicine.
