Product Description

Review

"This handbook is of special interest to hospital infection control officers and clinical microbiologists...I regard this book as an excellent resource for physicians, public health workers, hospital infection control personnel, and clinical microbiologists." (ASM News)

"A well organized and supremely practical book to have at hand when on–call for public health or indeed microbiology and infectious diseases"
Journal of Hospital Infection

"A very pragmatic, well organized handbook that has been well thought out. It should be read thoroughly and kept on the bedside table to consult as necessary."
Journal of Hospital Infection

"Each section of the book is clearly written, and laid out so that key information is readily apparent to the reader in a hurry. An excellent text, of use to infection control nurses in acute and community settings, as well as health protection staff."
British Journal of Infection Control

"This comprehensive and practical handbook will provide a very accessible source of detailed information for everyone in the field of communicable disease control."
Sir Liam Donaldson, Chief Medical Officer (from the foreword)


ON THE PREVIOUS EDITION

"This handbook will be a valuable resource for all those who are interested in control of communicable disease, including public–health physicians, epidemiologists, infection control nurses, microbiologists and those training to work in these related fields."
The Lancet Infectious Diseases


"This book fulfils all the needs of a practical handbook, being easy to use and packed with practical information."
Epidemiology and Infection


"This would be the first book to reach for in any number of day–to–day or crisis situations in communicable disease control."
British Journal of Infection Control


"If you undertake on–call public health duties, just buy the book."
Journal of Public Health Medicine


From the forward (of the first edition) by Sir Donald Acheson:

"...(this book) seems to me to incorporate all that is best in the tradition of (the CDSC) – sound science, attention to detail and an essentially practical approach."

"This outstanding and I suspect unique handbook is packed with useful information. I believe it will prove to be an essential resource for those, not only within the United Kingdom but throughout Europe, who have responsibility for the identification and control of infectious disease. It will also be an indispensable text for students aspiring to a career in this important field."

It is a really good book for health protection in the UK, especially for on-call duties. Very practical and straight to the point.
