About this title

Synopsis:

This sourcebook has been created for patients who have decided to make education and Internet-based research an integral part of the treatment process. Although it gives information useful to doctors, caregivers and other health professionals, it also tells patients where and how to look for information covering virtually all topics related to shingles, from the essentials to the most advanced areas of research. The title of this book includes the word official. This reflects the fact that the sourcebook draws from public, academic, government, and peer-reviewed research. Selected readings from various agencies are reproduced to give you some of the latest official information available to date on shingles. Following an introductory chapter, the sourcebook is organized into three parts. PART I: THE ESSENTIALS; Chapter 1. The Essentials on Shingles: Guidelines; Chapter 2. Seeking Guidance; Chapter 3. Clinical Trials and Shingles; PART II: ADDITIONAL RESOURCES AND ADVANCED MATERIAL; Chapter 4. Studies on Shingles; Chapter 5. Patents on Shingles; Chapter 6. Books on Shingles; Chapter 7. Multimedia on Shingles; Chapter 8. Physician Guidelines and Databases; PART III. APPENDICES; Appendix A. Researching Your Medications; Appendix B. Researching Alternative Medicine; Appendix C. Researching Nutrition; Appendix D. Finding Medical Libraries; Appendix E. Your Rights and Insurance; ONLINE GLOSSARIES; SHINGLES GLOSSARY; INDEX. Related topics include: Chickenpox, Herpes Zoster, Shingles.

From the Publisher:

This is a "must have" reference book for patients, parents, caregivers, and libraries with medical collections. This sourcebook is organized into three parts. Part I explores basic techniques to researching shingles (e.g. finding guidelines on diagnosis, treatments, and prognosis), followed by a number of topics, including information on how to get in touch with organizations, associations, or other patient networks dedicated to shingles. It also gives you sources of information that can help you find a doctor in your local area specializing in treating shingles. Collectively, the material presented in Part I is a complete primer on basic research topics for patients with shingles. Part II moves on to advanced research dedicated to shingles. Part II is intended for those willing to invest many hours of hard work and study. It is here that we direct you to the latest scientific and applied research on shingles. When possible, contact names, links via the Internet, and summaries are provided. In general, every attempt is made to recommend "free-to-use" options. Part III provides appendices of useful background reading for all patients with shingles or related disorders. The appendices are dedicated to more pragmatic issues faced by many patients with shingles. Accessing materials via medical libraries may be the only option for some readers, so a guide is provided for finding local medical libraries which are open to the public. Part III, therefore, focuses on advice that goes beyond the biological and scientific issues facing patients with shingles.
