Book Description

22 Sep 2011 Oxford Medical Handbooks
Extensively revised and fully updated, this new edition of the Oxford Handbook of Rheumatology provides everything you need to understand the wide range of rheumatic conditions. Including the latest guidelines and the most up-to-date information, this is the indispensible guide for students, trainees, consultant rheumatologists, and everyone dealing with patients with musculoskeletal disease.

Rheumatic conditions are common in both general and hospital practice; a primary feature of many multi-system illnesses, and in the context of injury, age-related change, and psychological distress. This handbook provides practical advice, guidance, and key clinical facts to help you provide the best care for your patients. Practically structured, the handbook focuses first on presenting symptoms, and then considers key diseases, emergencies, and rare diseases in more detail, finishing with a comprehensive account of assessment, guidelines, and treatment options including the latest advances in biological therapy. It provides practical guidelines on the management and diagnosis of patients with acute and chronic musculoskeletal disease. Colour plates and line drawings are present throughout along with tables of key information.

Taking a clinical, evidence-based approach, written by experts, and presented in a clear, practical, bullet-point style for rapid reference, this handbook will be your constant companion and a joy to use.

Product Description


This is a comprehensive pocket size text that no self-respecting healthcare professional working in this field should be without. (Nursing Standard)

As a nurse working in rheumatology out patient clinics I have found this book to be an extremely useful reference tool, and would recommend it to those health professionals working in rheumatology as a valuable and accessible source of information. (British Health Professionals in Rheumatology Newsletter)

This is invaluable to anyone who is new to the specialty, or who sees occasional rheumatic problems... It is essentially the first concise but readable text outlining how to evaluate commonly presenting rheumatic complaints that I have come across, which as a trainee I found practically very useful. Hence I unreservedly recommend this book to general practitioners, certainly junior doctors training in rheumatology and indeed any physician with an active interest in the specialty. (Rheumatology)

... offers a welcome addition to the practitioner's library because of its handy, pocket-sized format... a practical, clinically-oriented guide that can be rapidly and easily consulted. (Clinical and Experimental Rheumatology)

For those whose orthopaedic shelves are well-weighted, there will be probably still a gap for this most valuable source of all those conditions which are not to be found in orthopaedic texts, but which present in predominant numbers to every orthopaedic clinic...here is a book shorn of obscure phrases, giving clear descriptions of every condition causing pain in limbs, the physical signs required to make the diagnosis and a sceptical analysis of each as an entry...essential reading for everyone in surgical orthopaedics. (Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Vol 89-B)

The book provides an outstanding review of all major topics relevant to rheumatology. It is definitely a book worth keeping close by for anyone training in rheumatology. (Doody's Reviews)

The text is clear and didatic and concentrates mainly on the clinical aspects of the discipline. Cross reference is made to the main textbook where appropriate. About 50% of the book relates to presentation of rheumatic disease and the rest to clinical features of specific conditions. The tables are clear and well produced and should provide good aide memoirs. (Amazon Review)

[The book] is a comprehensive and extremely practical guide and a valuable companion to any health professional working in rheumatology...[I] would highly recommend this pocket guide to both trainees and qualified practitioners with an interest in the speciality. (British Health Professionals in Rheumatology)

About the Author

Dr Hakim qualified in Medicine at the University of Cambridge and trained in General Medicine and Rheumatology at Addenbrooke's, Cambridge and University College Hospital, London. He was an Arthritis Research Campaign Clinical Fellow at St Thomas' Hospital before taking up his present post as Consultant Physician and Rheumatologist at Whipps Cross University Hospital NHS Trust in 2000. Dr Hakim has held several clinical management posts leading up to appointment as the Trusts Director of Strategy. He is also a Principle and Chief Investigator for the UK in several international clinical trials in Rheumatology, works closely with the British Society for Rheumatology and Arthritis Rheumatism Musculoskeletal Alliance (ARMA), and is a Medical Advisor to the several Medical Charities.

Gavin Clunie is a Consultant Rheumatologist at Ipswich Hospital. He trained in rheumatology in London and has a research background in musculoskeletal imaging and nuclear medicine techniques. He now has research and clinical interest in Spondylarthropathy conditions (ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis etc) and runs a bone density (DXA) scanning and mini-metabolic bone service in the hospital. Prior to medicine, Gavin was employed in tennis and had modest success as a professional and had taught widely in the USA and Australia notably. Further titles by this author can therefore be found in the 'self-help' sections of large book shops.

After completing his specialist training, Dr Haq joined BSMS in 2005 as Senior Lecturer in Medical Education and Rheumatology at Brighton and Sussex Medical School, a new medical school established in 2002. Dr Haq contributed to curriculum development and assessment strategy, and in 2008 became Director of Undergraduate Studies, with responsibility for the undergraduate BMBS degree programme. Dr Haq has just been appointed as the first Associate Medical Director: Education for Arthritis Research UK and in the past has served on several BSR committees and was national trainee representative.
