ABC of Epilepsy


By (author): W. Henry Smithson, Matthew C. Walker

ABC of Epilepsy provides a practical guide for general practitioners, and all those working in primary care, on the diagnosis, treatment and management of epilepsy, and for the continued monitoring and long term support of what is still a relatively poorly understood neurological disorder.

This brand new title in the ABC series is highly illustrated throughout and presents what epilepsy is, its classification, and how to diagnose it. It covers anti-epileptic drugs and non-drug treatments, as well as self-management and living with epilepsy.

Edited by a general practitioner and neurologist team, the ABC of Epilepsy reflects current NICE guidelines and is ideal for all GPs, primary health care professionals, practice nurses and specialist nurses, and non-specialist medical staff who play an increasing role in monitoring and managing of epilepsy patients.

Disease Prevention: A Critical Toolkit


By (author): John Frank, Ruth Jepson, Andrew J. Williams

Preventive medical interventions and non-medicalised public health programmes that promise health benefits in the future, from actions taken now, carry a strong ethical requirement of ‘first, do no harm’ or primum non nocere. New preventive advice and interventions are being promoted on a daily basis, Disease Prevention: A Critical Toolkit provides a set of appraisal tools to guide those considering a preventive action to make sure that it is effective (does more good than harm), efficient (is a competitive use of scarce resources), and equitable in its impact across society.

Case studies and worked examples illustrate the risks and benefits of specific preventive interventions. Divided into 10 chapters this practical and concise book focuses on multiple aspects of prevention including the hierarchy of preventive options; the assessment of causation; finding and appraising scientific evidence; prevention directed at entire populations (as opposed to individuals); measuring chronic disease risk factors and medically managing them: statin treatment of high cholesterol; PSA screening for prostate cancer; genetic screening for future disease risk; and assessing the health equity implications of prevention. Aimed at front-line public health and primary care professionals, Disease Prevention: A Critical Toolkit will equip them with the up-to-date skills necessary to help them better inform and serve their patients and communities.

Groin Pain Syndrome: A Multidisciplinary Guide to Diagnosis and Treatment


This book provides accurate descriptions of the injuries responsible for groin pain, which tend to occur in association with particular sports. The approach is multidisciplinary, ensuring that the book will be of broad appeal, and the focus is especially on epidemiology, etiology, and possible treatment options. Throughout, care has been taken to depict the state of the art in this constantly evolving field. A new classification of groin pain syndrome is presented, and the coverage encompasses hip, visceral, tendon/muscle, bone, and neurologic pathology. In addition, guidance is provided in selection of the rehabilitation program that will best meet the patient’s needs, taking into account individual circumstances. 
Groin pain is among the most prevalent lower limb symptoms. The pain may occur immediately after an injury or develop gradually and is often exacerbated by continued use of the injured area. In presenting the latest knowledge on groin pain syndrome and its management, this book will be of value to a range of practitioners, including sports medicine specialists, primary care providers, urologists, orthopedists, and physiatrists.
