Marsden's Book of Movement Disorders Online (Hardcover)

By (author): Ivan Donaldson, C. David Marsden, Susanne A. Schneider, Kailash P. Bhatia

'Marsden's Book of Movement Disorders' represents the final work of the late Professor C. David Marsden, who was the most influential figure in the field of movement disorders, in terms of his contributions to both research and clinical practice, in the modern era. It was conceived and written by David Marsden and his colleague at the Institute of Neurology, Prof. Ivan Donaldson. It was their intention that this would be the most comprehensive book on movement disorders and also that it would serve as the 'clinical Bible' for the management of these conditions. It provides a masterly survey of the entire topic, which has been made possible only by vast laboratory and bedside experience.

The coverage of this comprehensive online resource includes the full breadth of movement disorders, from the underlying anatomy and understanding of basal ganglia function to the diagnosis and management of specific movement disorders, including the more common conditions such as Parkinson's Disease through to very rare conditions such as Neimann-Pick disease. Chapters follow a structured format, featuring historical overviews, definitions, clinical features, differential diagnosis, investigations and treatment covered in a structured way. Figures include many original photographs and diagrams of historical significance, which can all be downloaded as PowerPoint presentations. Among these illustrations are still images of some original film clips of some of Dr. Marsden's patients published here for the first time.

Comprehensively referenced, with links through to primary research journal articles, and updated by experts from the Institute of Neurology at Queen Square, 'Marsden's Book of Movement Disorders' is a valuable reference for movement disorder specialists and researchers, as well as clinicians who care for patients with movement disorders.

There is a huge need for supportive mentoring among students, doctors in training and general practitioners. Mentoring is an effective way of supporting doctors and preventing problems. The author argues that all doctors should seek a mentor. Medical training involves transitions; school to university, student to junior doctor and trainee to GP. It is at these transition points that mentoring is most valuable. This book - Medical Mentoring - is a practical guide to using mentoring to help doctors with their professional development, support them when difficulties arise and prevent problems developing. If you're considering mentoring, want to adapt your approach or develop your mentoring skills, this is the book for you. This practical guide, illustrated by case stories: will give prospective mentors the confidence to improve student/doctor support defines the role of a medical mentor and the benefits of providing support to doctors and students discusses reasons why medical students and doctors struggle during their careers gives practical advice on identifying the student/doctor in difficulty discusses what students/doctors value in a mentor offers a practical guide to mentoring using a clinical model. At present doctors and other healthcare professionals are perceived to be less caring and compassionate. GPs face an increasing workload with little support. Recruitment to general practice is difficult in some areas. Although mentoring is well established in nursing and educational circles, there is still a culture in medicine that a doctor should be able to cope by themselves. Seeking support is still viewed by some as a weakness. It is puzzling that clinicians who use their skills to support and care for patients rarely give the same level of attention to their colleagues. The book shows how these clinical skills can be adapted effectively in mentoring, while acknowledging that mentees are not patients. This guide aims to give prospective mentors the confidence to improve student/doctor support and so will improve recruitment and retention of students and GPs, and enable doctors to deliver more effective patient care.

The second edition of An Atlas of Foot and Ankle Surgery builds on the success of the first, with an international selection of expert contributors to represent the current practice of foot and ankle surgery throughout the world. The material in this atlas is presented according to how foot and ankle pathology is encountered by most orthopaedic surgeons in their practice. Some chapters deal with individual common procedures, such as the soft tissue procedure for hallux valgus: in these, technical details and variations of technique are presented. Other chapters deal with diagnoses, such as metatarsalgia or cavus foot, and a number of different surgical treatment options are described. The scope of each chapter exceeds surgical instructions alone: the respective pathology is detailed, as are diagnostic techniques and alternative methods of treatment. The Atlas of Foot and Ankle Surgery should be of interest not only to inexperienced specialist surgeons, but also to the general orthopaedists and surgeon in training with an interest in disorders of the foot and ankle.
