    DescriptionThis latest edition of the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Specialties continues its long tradition of providing a unique resource for medical students and junior doctors. It is an excellent companion for anyone who would like an introduction to the medical specialties, those who practice across a wide range of specialties, or whose field interacts with many other specialties. It is also ideal for those who simply enjoy broadening their medical knowledge, knowing that they will be equipped for any eventuality on the ward or in the field! There has been a substantial increase in the number of full-colour images and diagrams, helping the reader to develop their diagnostic skills and guiding them along the best course for management of an unprecedented spectrum of conditions, from acute glaucoma to zoster infection. Best evidence, advances in practice, and guidelines are all fully updated, including the latest BLS, APLS, and ATLS approaches. Furthermore, it gives practical insight into topics such as major incident management, and the assessment of developmental milestones in children.There are also new features throughout the book that help clear the mists from often confusing medical terminology. In combination with its companion volume, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine (with which there is extensive and expansive cross referencing), the eighth edition should be an essential companion for any medical trainee or practitioner with the spirit of self-improvement and a verve for their practice.
