Description - Medicine and the Internet by Bruce C. McKenzie

The Internet boils down to just two things - communication and information - both of which lie at the core of medical practice. The Internet's contribution to medicine is no longer mere potential. Rather, it offers the tangible inducements of efficiency, resource sharing, accessibility, knowledge procurement, and economy. This third edition of this original and best-selling book about the Internet for doctors and medical students has been completely revised and updated. The editor has assembled a team of expert contributors to produce an unmatched, compact volume of accurate information and respected opinion. The internet is here to stay and if you have thus far avoided getting online, now is the time to take the plunge. If you already have access, this book will stimulate your exploration of online resources and topical issues. Adapting to the changing requirements of its readers, Medicine and the Internet is tailored to the needs of both beginner and enthusiast, while acknowledging that providing clear, readily accessible knowledge is paramount. Medicine and the Internet: * Uniquely focuses on the application of Internet technologies from a clinical point of view. * Comprehensively covers using the Internet for medical communications, clinical care, medical education, consumer health information, medical research, publishing, and commerce. * Considers key issues surrounding online medical advice, copyright, confidentiality, information quality, equitable access, and 'e-health' ethics. * Provides real-world examples illustrating how the Internet can provide solutions to everyday problems. * Features a comprehensive jargon-busting glossary
