Clinical Cases in Infectious Diseases by Sanjaya Senanayake

Book Description

Infectious diseases do not recognize geographic, political or social boundaries. Health workers everywhere, whether they are clinically-based, laboratory-based or from a public health background, must collaborate in all aspects of investigation, diagnosis and control of such infections. Clinical Cases in Infectious Diseases: A Public Health Approach, increases our understanding of the synergy generated by these groups when they work closely together to fight notifiable infections. Twenty-two Clinical Cases comprehensively discuss twenty-three infections in a problem-based format. Each chapter is modelled on an interactive scenario with characters and dialogue, incorporating clinical, laboratory and public health aspects. Key features include: at a glance provides a comprehensive overview of the disease; differential diagnoses demonstrates what serious diseases can mask as; investigations identifies what tests should be undertaken given the presentation; treatment guides the reader through current processes of clinical management; prognosis presents the likely outcomes; and isolation measures identifies how to avoid an outbreak.
