Launched on Oxford Medicine Online in 2012, with the full-text of eight Mayo Clinic Scientific Press (MCSP) print titles and a bank of multiple-choice questions, Mayo Clinic Toolkit provides a single location for resident, fellow, and practicing clinicians to undertake the self-testing necessary to prepare for, and pass, the Boards. Mayo Clinic Infectious Diseases Board Reviewis a comprehensive, state-of-the-art publication. Written by practicing Mayo Clinic infectious diseases specialists, the resource covers current and essential clinical aspects of diseases likely to be encountered by the infectious diseases specialist as well as to appear on the subspecialty infectious diseases board examination. Tables, diagrams, algorithms, and images can all be enlarged and downloaded to PowerPoint slides. Highlights of The Mayo Clinic Toolkit include: - Each title is presented in an enhanced format, allowing the enlargement and download of all figures and images, and linking to external sources referenced in the text. - The multiple-choice questions are designed to mirror those in the Board exam for realistic preparation; they also link back to the relevant title, and allow the user to measure their development through the recording of practice-exam success. - It can be accessed on a range of internet enabled devices, giving residents, fellows, and practicing clinicians the choice to study in locations which suit them- Subscription lengths range from 1-month to a full year. Combining two complimentary resource types into a single location, with enhancements to the print works, the flexibility to choose where and when to study, and the ability to monitor revision progress, Mayo Clinic Toolkit is truly the go-to site for Board preparation.
A woman’s innocuous cold symptoms mask a debilitating rare tick infection. A young man develops shingles, then suffers blinding head pain later in life. After years of frustration, a family eradicates head lice forever.

He busts myths, explores symptoms, treatments and covers the latest medical breakthroughs, and the big issues affecting public health. Bowden offers eye-opening insights into infectious diseases from a doctor’s perspective, doled out with honesty, empathy and a dose of humor.

Infectious disease (ID) is a constant concern for pharmacy clinicians, with far too few specialists to meet the demand. That means that while more and more pharmacists are seeking the added qualification in infectious disease along with other Board Certifications, many clinical pharmacists have to meet a higher standard as de facto ID specialists. Further, treatment of infectious disease involves a good deal of grey area, which means that even the experts need a way to verify their mastery Now, Infectious Disease Pharmacotherapy Self Assessment, by Lea Eiland and Diane Ginsburg, bring you thorough and relevant cases where questions are delivered with varying degrees of difficulty, allowing you to truly gauge your level of understanding of complex ID pharmacotherapy problems. Three levels of difficulty offers users a way to assess their mastery of ID topics.

Easy-to-apply set of principles for selecting the right antibioticAntibiotic Basics for Clinicians, Second Edition, shows you how to apply your knowledge of pharmacology and microbiology in order to select the appropriate antibiotic. Rather than rely on rote memorization, you’ll learn the underlying rationale for treatment of common infectious diseases and pathogens. The text focuses on antibacterial agents, examining individual antibiotics and antibiotic classes as well as definitive and empiric therapies—providing a framework for prescription and clinical preparation for students training to be physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacologists, or medical technologists. Clinicians also rely on Antibiotic Basics for quick reference or review.The Second Edition includes current research and new approaches to emerging resistant organisms such as community-acquired, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase-producing bacteria. In addition, the book has been updated to reflect changes in treatment guidelines, including new guidelines for Clostridium difficile colitis and urinary tract infections. Special features help you “think like a clinician”: Illustrations help you understand how antibiotics fight against bacterial infections. Mnemonics throughout the text make it easier to remember which antibiotics are prescribed for specific pathogens. Searchable online version of the text takes you to the content you need from any web-enabled device. Case studies demonstrate how the principles set forth in the text are applied in clinical practice. Questions and answers improve your ability to choose the right antibacterial agent. Appendices include dosing for adults and children, use of antibacterial agents in pregnancy, and treatment of bioterrorism agents.
Cases in Medical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases challenges students to develop a working knowledge of the variety of microorganisms that cause infections in humans. This valuable, interactive text will help them better understand the clinical importance of the basic science concepts presented in medical microbiology or infectious disease courses. The cases are presented as “unknowns” and represent actual case presentations of patients the authors have encountered. Each case is accompanied by several questions to test knowledge in four broad areas including the organism’s characteristics and laboratory diagnosis; pathogenesis and clinical characteristics of the infection; epidemiology; and prevention and, in some cases, drug resistance and treatment. This new fourth edition includes: an entirely new section, “Advanced Cases,” which includes newly recognized disease agents as well as highly complex cases where the interaction of the immune system and human pathogens can be more closely examined a revised “Primer on the Laboratory Diagnosis of Infectious Diseases” section that reflects the increasing importance of molecular-based assays Forty-two new cases that explore the myriad advances in the study of infectious disease in the past decade Thirty-two updated cases that reflect the current state of the art as it relates to the organism causing the infection This textbook also include specific tools to assist students in solving the cases, including a table of normal values, glossary of medical terms, and figures illustrating microscopic organism morphology, laboratory tests, and clinical symptoms. Cases in Medical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases is a proven resource for preparing for Part I of the National Board of Medical Examiners Exam and an excellent reference for infectious disease rotations.
