This is the first primary care dermatology reference written by and for nurses. It focuses on approximately 60 skin conditions that are commonly seen in primary care settings and provides unique decision trees to assist in accurate diagnosis. Organized for quick access, the book presents conditions alphabetically and includes evidence-based treatment and management strategies along with full-color photos taken during actual office visits. Dermatologic diagnostics cover skin assessment, specimen collection procedures, and use of mechanical devices, along with relevant evidence-based topical, systemic, and surgical treatment options.
The resource provides an overview of dermatology basics including skin anatomy and physiology and skin terminology. Illustrations, graphs, and skin terminology help to accurately document descriptions of rashes, lesions, and diseases during diagnostic evaluations. The book also defines risk factors in relation to skin conditions and diseases and delineates conditions common to specific populations. A broad range of management strategies is presented along with alerts for when expert follow-up is indicated. To promote rapid identification of skin conditions, each is presented in a consistent organization that includes overview, epidemiology, pathology/histology, clinical presentation, differential diagnosis, treatment/management, special considerations and appropriate referrals, and patient education. The Clinical Pearls feature captures the authors” expertise. Additional photos are available from the website as a digital photo archive.
This book provides well written details regarding dermatology conditions, but it does not include near enough pictures. Fitzpatrick’s books contains a lot of pictures of derm outbreaks on different parts of the body in a lot more detail.
I received this book from a pharmaceutical company. I am disappointed in this book. The pictures in this book are black, white and not a good quality. It is difficult to visualize the rash. I tell patients I can not diagnose a rash without seeing it. Well, I can not compare the patient’s skin disorder to the photos in this book. I will continue to use Fitzpatrick’s Color Atlas & Synopsis of Clinical Dermatology for the images. I believe the 2 books will compliment each other.
