Canadian Residents Rheumatology Handbook Book Review:

In 2001 a group of academic rheumatologists with an interest in medical education began to meet together to discuss how to improve rheumatology education for residents training in internal medicine. A curriculum was developed to address the needs of medical residents and to help trainees gain understanding and confidence in managing problems in rheumatology. The Canadian Residents' Rheumatology Handbook was designed as a practical, companion manual for this curriculum. The first edition of this comprehensive handbook is divided into seven thematic sections. The first three sections address the "Approach to..." common presenting problems of patients with evolving rheumatic diseases, selection and interpretation of laboratory tests and imaging, and therapeutics. Selected rheumatologic emergencies are addressed next. The last two, well- illustrated sections address the approach to physical examination and the approach to joint aspiration and injection techniques. The individual chapters have been written by rheumatologists from across Canada who have an interest in education, and are excellent teachers at their own institutions. Although this handbook has been designed for residents in internal medicine, it will be an excellent resource for residents in family medicine programs, practicing physicians and medical students. Allied health professionals and nurse practitioners will also find that it is written at a level that is clear and easily understandable, and will help them to better manage their patients and clients.

Tricks of the Trade in Neurology Book Review:

About the author: Iftikhar Khawaja was teaching Neurology in the nineties to the postgraduate doctors aspiring to specialize as Neurologists as fellows of the College of Physicians & Surgeons of Pakistan. He was also an examiner for FCPS (Neurology). He was closely associated with medical publishing in the nineties as Editor of JPIMS (Journal of Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences). He has written articles on stroke, headache and fits and is author of another book titled "Understanding Neurology." He believes in using plain language and in the past has written medical articles in the lay press. In the recent years he has been demonstrating, what he calls "the art of deduction in Neurology" at the bedside to medical students and junior doctors. The format of this book reflects his teaching style. Dr Khawaja lives with his wife in Whitley Bay in the North East of England. They have two sons. Currently he works as a Stroke physician in the NHS. In his spare time he plays the sitar and golf. Why I wrote this book: "What pains me most is to see the junior doctors shunning and avoiding Neurology. It is a beautifully logical subject. Each case is a practical demonstration on cause and effect, an exercise in the art of deduction and indeed a better "whodunit" than any detective fiction could ever produce."

50 Gastrointestinal Cases and Associated Imaging Book Review:

Medical students and junior doctors are an integral part of the healthcare system. On an academic gastroenterology service, they often initially evaluate the patients that are then staffed by the consulting physician. Like all clinical specialties, the acquisition of medical knowledge is required to gain expertise. There are several resources such as textbooks and evidence-based articles that are available for this purpose. Inspired from patient care, this book offers a fresh approach to clinical teaching. 50 Gastrointestinal Cases and Associated Imaging is a different kind of book. It encompasses a gamut of cases for which gastroenterologists are commonly consulted for in the hospital and outpatient setting. Each case is presented from initial history and workup including imaging (various modalities including endoscopy), followed by a brief discussion on management. Questions are presented to the reader in each case followed by an answer. Since each case is unique, the pertinent teaching points are tested in a question format within the case narrative. Similar to real-life scenarios, this helps the reader to retain the most important information. Why buy this book? Unlike listing facts as most review books do, teaching points are integrated into realistic clinical cases. Medical students to residents/registrars in internal medicine, emergency medicine, GI medicine, radiology and surgery would benefit from this book alike. Secondary audiences will include nurses and general practitioners who want to understand the presentation of common GI cases and associated imaging. Moreover, it could also be potentially used as a training tool – a valuable educational resource for senior colleagues who enjoy teaching. Finally, this book would make an excellent prerequisite prior to starting any gastroenterology rotation.

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks Book Review:

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “The story of modern medicine and bioethics—and, indeed, race relations—is refracted beautifully, and movingly.”—Entertainment Weekly NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE FROM HBO® STARRING OPRAH WINFREY AND ROSE BYRNE • ONE OF THE “MOST INFLUENTIAL” (CNN), “DEFINING” (LITHUB), AND “BEST” (THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER) BOOKS OF THE DECADE • ONE OF ESSENCE’S 50 MOST IMPACTFUL BLACK BOOKS OF THE PAST 50 YEARS • WINNER OF THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE HEARTLAND PRIZE FOR NONFICTION NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review • Entertainment Weekly • O: The Oprah Magazine • NPR • Financial Times • New York • Independent (U.K.) • Times (U.K.) • Publishers Weekly • Library Journal • Kirkus Reviews • Booklist • Globe and Mail Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor Southern tobacco farmer who worked the same land as her slave ancestors, yet her cells—taken without her knowledge—became one of the most important tools in medicine: The first “immortal” human cells grown in culture, which are still alive today, though she has been dead for more than sixty years. HeLa cells were vital for developing the polio vaccine; uncovered secrets of cancer, viruses, and the atom bomb’s effects; helped lead to important advances like in vitro fertilization, cloning, and gene mapping; and have been bought and sold by the billions. Yet Henrietta Lacks remains virtually unknown, buried in an unmarked grave. Henrietta’s family did not learn of her “immortality” until more than twenty years after her death, when scientists investigating HeLa began using her husband and children in research without informed consent. And though the cells had launched a multimillion-dollar industry that sells human biological materials, her family never saw any of the profits. As Rebecca Skloot so brilliantly shows, the story of the Lacks family—past and present—is inextricably connected to the dark history of experimentation on African Americans, the birth of bioethics, and the legal battles over whether we control the stuff we are made of. Over the decade it took to uncover this story, Rebecca became enmeshed in the lives of the Lacks family—especially Henrietta’s daughter Deborah. Deborah was consumed with questions: Had scientists cloned her mother? Had they killed her to harvest her cells? And if her mother was so important to medicine, why couldn’t her children afford health insurance? Intimate in feeling, astonishing in scope, and impossible to put down, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks captures the beauty and drama of scientific discovery, as well as its human consequences.
