This new edition of the standard guide to health sciences sources is essential for students, librarians, and health professionals. Prepared with the Medical Library Association, this completely updated and revised fifth edition lists classic and up-to-the-minute print resources and helps librarians to meet customers' changing expectations for electronic versions of traditionally print reference sources, new reliable electronic-only resources, and resources that they can access from their home computers through freely available Web sites or through library licenses. The authors address questions librarians need to consider in developing and maintaining their reference collections in both the print and electronic environments, focusing on works that can be considered foundation or basic works. New contributors -- including Jean Blackwell, Feili Tu, Katherine Schilling and Tom Flemming -- provide fresh takes on organization and management of the reference collection; bibliographic sources for periodicals; indexing, abstracting, and digital database resources; U.S. government documents and technical reports; conferences, reviews, and translations; terminology; handbooks and manuals; drug information sources; and grant sources. Other chapters cover bibliographic sources for monographs, consumer health sources, medical and health statistics, directories and biographical sources, and history sources."

This work includes a foreword by Elizabeth Rogerson. Head of Education and Development, International Virtual Nursing School Head, Distance Learning Centre (Nursing and Palliative Care), University of Dundee. It considers all the patient's symptoms and all the information available to us, then assesses the symptoms, signs and information given, using this to choose the appropriate remedies for the problem, and extra information will be offered where available and appropriate. This easy to use, evidence-based guide offers practical resources for every day use. Well laid out, with a simple alphabetical format, "Care of the Cancer Patient" covers the management of common problems, contains basic explanations of pathophysiology and relevant pharmacology, and includes vital guidance on new treatments and scientific papers. It is ideal for non-specialist doctors, nurses, carers and other health professionals who look after patients with cancer-related symptoms. 'This book recognises the complexity inherent in the cancer journey and places a spotlight on the human face of health care management, specifically on the ability to provide careful, individualised and sensitive management of symptom control that aims to make a difference to the patient's quality of life. It is written in a manner that is acceptable to professionals, patients and carers alike. This book adopts a unique approach to symptom management in palliative care, inviting the practitioner to consider the possible causes of the symptom, and then assess the patient with these in mind. Paying attention to the pathophysiology of the symptom and respecting the individual needs of the patient, one is guided to make a logical choice of treatment by thinking about the pharmacological actions of the available drugs. This is a book to be on the desk ready for quick reference, not stored on a shelf in a library.' - Elizabeth Rogerson, in the Foreword.
