Diagnostic Reasoning Book Review:

Training in clinical chemistry is acquired via different avenues that include didactic lectures on pathophysiology of disease, methodologies and practical aspects of testing, and through attendance of operations meetings, sign-out sessions, seminars and tutorials. There is little instruction on how to apply the vast amount of knowledge gained in the process to practice. In other branches of medicine, cases are regularly presented with clinical information and therapeutic interventions which form the basis of training. Diagnostic Reasoning: Laboratory Based Case Studies in Clinical Chemistry fills this gap for clinical chemistry. The concise and practical approach of the book, including real-life scenarios, is an excellent resource for pathology trainees, clinical laboratory science students, clinical chemistry fellows, clinical laboratory professionals, and clinicians. These cases help professionals remain competent in the field and be successful in their board exams. The cases are stated as they present, often with no or few clinical details accompanying the sample request with only barcoded samples arriving into the laboratory. In a busy laboratory, thousands of these cases are received daily and it is impossible to review the clinical information associated with the specimens. There are no books with a similar approach and emphasis Fills the gap in teaching by addressing the subject from a laboratory practical prospective with concomitant application of evidence-based laboratory investigation Presents laboratory data in tabulated format to resemble real-life scenarios, shows list of abbreviations and conversion factors Cases begin with clinical presentation and information not available to those within the clinical laboratory Discusses the differential diagnosis and suggests additional testing or investigations as necessary

Diagnostic Skills in Clinical Laboratory Science Book Review:

This innovative textbook and CD-ROM package provides the most interactive case-based learning tool for clinical lab science. Cases are presented in a simulated laboratory setting allowing students to hone their clinical reasoning skills as outlined in the new curriculum guidelines, Body of Knowledge, published by the American Society of Clinical Laboratory Science. Each clinical sample includes patient demographic information establishing the case. Students are then asked to perform or interpret laboratory test results or retrieve additional test results to resolve the case – exactly as they would in the clinical laboratory.

Improving Diagnosis in Health Care Book Review:

Getting the right diagnosis is a key aspect of health care - it provides an explanation of a patient's health problem and informs subsequent health care decisions. The diagnostic process is a complex, collaborative activity that involves clinical reasoning and information gathering to determine a patient's health problem. According to Improving Diagnosis in Health Care, diagnostic errors-inaccurate or delayed diagnoses-persist throughout all settings of care and continue to harm an unacceptable number of patients. It is likely that most people will experience at least one diagnostic error in their lifetime, sometimes with devastating consequences. Diagnostic errors may cause harm to patients by preventing or delaying appropriate treatment, providing unnecessary or harmful treatment, or resulting in psychological or financial repercussions. The committee concluded that improving the diagnostic process is not only possible, but also represents a moral, professional, and public health imperative. Improving Diagnosis in Health Care a continuation of the landmark Institute of Medicine reports To Err Is Human (2000) and Crossing the Quality Chasm (2001) finds that diagnosis-and, in particular, the occurrence of diagnostic errorsâ€"has been largely unappreciated in efforts to improve the quality and safety of health care. Without a dedicated focus on improving diagnosis, diagnostic errors will likely worsen as the delivery of health care and the diagnostic process continue to increase in complexity. Just as the diagnostic process is a collaborative activity, improving diagnosis will require collaboration and a widespread commitment to change among health care professionals, health care organizations, patients and their families, researchers, and policy makers. The recommendations of Improving Diagnosis in Health Care contribute to the growing momentum for change in this crucial area of health care quality and safety.

Laboratory Diagnostic Pathways Book Review:

The prognosis of a disease often depends on the timing of therapeutic invention, which in turn strongly relies on a reliable and quick diagnosis. Laboratory diagnostic pathways are algorithms that give structure to the diagnostic process, thereby minimizing the risk of mistreatment, shortening the hospital stay, and lowering the cost for treatment. This book offers 70 diagnostic algorithms that lead physicians and laboratory personnel through the diagnostic process in a step-by-step fashion. In Part One, general basics, infrastructure, and economic aspects are discussed and tipps for implementation are given. Part Two introduces screening methods for cases without a suspected diagnosis as well as specific pathways for stepwise diagnosis of the most common diseases, accompanied by information on pathophysiology, preanalytical measures, implementation, and interpretation of results.

Laboratory Data and Patient Care Book Review:

The best conferences are often those where the participants are from a mixture of different disciplines. There is a cross fertilization of ideas and a wider perspective of common problems. The 6th International Meeting on Clinical Laboratory Organization and Management, held in Noordwijkerhout, The Netherlands, on 24th-28th June 1987 lived up to its promise of a stimu lating program and differing views from a wide range of international par ticipants. The theme of the conference was "Laboratory Data and Patient Care" and this provided a forum for discussion of many aspects of laboratory input into the diagnosis and monitoring of disease. The titles of the papers in this book of the proceedings will give some indication of the breadth of topics discussed, ranging from problems of laboratory management and pro fessional leadership to educating the clinician in the most cost effective testing strategies; and computer aided diagnosis to the best presentation of data and graphical displays. The backgrounds of the participants were equally wide, ranging from medical statisticians and computer experts to practising clinicians and heads of clinical laboratories. There was also a significant number of delegates from commercial companies who were able to inject a different perspective on many problems. This blend of backgrounds and disciplines promoted much discussion and new avenues for research and development.

Hematology Book Review:

This book is a centennial volume celebrating the enormous progress made in hematology in the 20th century. It is edited by Marshall Lichtman, a distinguished senior hematologist, past president of the American Society of Hematology, and co-editor of the leading text in the field. Hematology is a compendium, with commentaries, of the most important papers published in the field from 1900-1999. The book will be useful for reference--many of the older papers can no longer be found in most libraries, yet are still referred to in current publications, especially review articles--as well as teaching. The Editor and a team of associate editors have included the most important papers covering eight categories: anemia; phagocytic cells; platelets; coagulation and thrombosis; lymphocytes and immune disorders; transfusion medicine; hematologic malignancies and therapeutics; and laboratory developments. Each paper is accompanied by a 1-2 page commentary explaining its impact, and references to the developments that resulted. Key Features * Contains 86 landmark articles from the last 100 years of research in clinical hematology * Includes expert commentaries discussing the impact of each article * Cites approximately 1000 preceding or subsequent articles of consequence in the commentaries * Includes the English translations of nine articles originally published in other languages * Provides easy access to several papers that may no longer be found in libraries
