Key Features
Handbook of Dermatology Treatments gives practical, clinical information on the uses of topical and systemic dermatologic drugs and basic surgery in a concise, high-yield format. Key issues such as common usage, potential combinations, pitfalls, cautions and top tips are provided by a global team of dermatology experts.

Chapters follow a standardised layout for each treatment, making it easy for the reader to get to the information they need: licensed indications, common usage, combinations, pragmatic recommendations, pitfalls, cautions (red flags) and top tips. This distilled clinical information is very hard to find quickly in most dermatology textbooks and websites. Competing texts tend to focus on systemic drugs only, whereas Handbook of Dermatology Treatments also covers topical drugs and basic surgical techniques.

Handbook of Dermatology Treatments is a definitive quick-reference guide to treating skin disease and will be an essential resource for general practitioners, primary care practitioners, trainee and practising dermatologists, nurses, nurse practitioners and physician assistants.

Features

The information is well organized. Each chapter lists diseases for which the drug may be used, the mechanism of action, potential risks, and tips on how to effectively use the medication, as well as succinctly covering alternative therapies. You can quickly look up information and read the 2 to 3 pages on each drug in a few minutes. Appropriate laboratory monitoring and when to expect a clinical response is noted.

Assessment

I was surprised at the quantity of clinical information this slim book contained. This book makes it a snap to look up the uses and side effects of various medications. It's the perfect way to master current concepts of various therapies while the patient is in the exam room.
