Medicine and the Internet

by Bruce C. McKenzie

Medicine and the Internet Synopsis

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

Medicine and the Internet Press Reviews

Bruce McKenzie's book in its third edition in six years is an excellent guide to clinicians seeking to use the Internet. Following clear and understandable explanations of the Internet, e-mail and the World Wide Web, his panel of contributors describe the use of these in communication, clinical care, education (for doctors and patients), research, publishing and commerce. Throughout there are the addresses of essential Internet sites, and a large number of supporting references . . . For those to whom the computer is still a novelty as well as those who regard it as an essential aid, this book will be a boon and its acquisition is highly recommended. * Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, Vol 31, No 2 * For anyone with an interest in making full use of the Internet in medicine (which should be all of us these days) this book is highly recommended. * Oxford Medical School Gazette * This book should be essential reading for those with more than a passing interest in providing patient care in the 21st century. * Hospital Medicine * Now in its third edition, this splendid work presents the vast panoply of the world that is 'the internet' from a useful and readable perspective. * British Dental Journal, Vol 193, No 8 * The authors are to be congratulated: this is a cut above most medical internet guides in its ambition and scope, and orders what can often seem a chaotic field in a clear and educational manner. * Douglas Carnall, GP, London in The British Medical Journal *
