Textbook of Primary Care Dermatology
Dr David Buckley’s new book called “Textbook of Primary Care Dermatology” was published by www.Springer.com. It is primarily aimed at GP’s and other members of the primary care team such as practice nurses, public health nurses, pharmacists, chiropodists and students of these disciplines. It should also be useful for busy hospital based doctors and nurses who do not have easy access to dermatology expertise. Finally, it will be a great primer for doctors training in dermatology.
The textbook was written by Dr Buckley and edited by Dr Paola Pasquali, a consultant dermatologist working in Spain. It has 67 chapters on various common skin, hair and nail problems and is richly illustrated with 236 color photos. There are numerous tables and diagrams which help explain the various dermatology topics. The book also has a useful chapter containing patient information leaflets, an extensive bibliography and links to numerous relevant websites.
The Textbook of Primary Care Dermatology is available from www.springer.com in hardback (€99) and electronic format (€86) (price includes VAT and delivery).
Review by Dr Diarmuid Quinlan:
“Many GP consultations address the dermatology issues of our patients. This primary care dermatology textbook provides an authoritative yet accessible guide to dermatology for both novice and experienced GPs. The engaging content and excellent photographs reflect the authors broad based hospital dermatology training, the Diploma in Practical Dermatology and decades of GP dermatology. The approach of 'Key Points' and 'What to tell the patient' distils clinical evidence to support the GP and dispel popular myths and misconceptions. The dermatology referencing is comprehensive, with invaluable hyperlinks to many sources: a welcome innovation for busy clinicians. This book will be an invaluable dermatology resource on the desk, or computer desktop, of every GP.”
