Containing first rate, pragmatic advice on diagnosis and clear guidelines for recommended management, it also covers the scientific principles that underlie medical practice. Packed into one comprehensive volume, the textbook contains chapters, organised into 13 sections for easy-access to the relevant information. Each chapter is written by an internationally-acknowledged expert, relates basic science to evidence based guidelines and clinical management, and where appropriate offers an outline of the controversies in the field.
The textbook has an international focus, and where possible deals with medical practice in countries without advanced medical resources. Containing over illustrations, including a colour plate section of full colour photographs, and numerous tables and boxes to complement the text, the textbook is now also available online.
Individuals who purchase the print edition of the Oxford Textbook of Endocrinology and Diabetes second edition are entitled to six months' free access to the online version.
