The indispensable guide to all aspects of clinical care, the Oxford Handbook of Endocrinology and Diabetes has been fully updated for its fourth edition, providing comprehensive coverage of both disciplines in a practical and concise format. Featuring new chapters on transition in endocrinology and diabetes, practical nursing considerations, and the genetics of endocrinology, and expanded sections on inherited endocrine syndromes and MEN, it retains the clear organisation and layout for ease of reference as the previous edition over a broader range of topics. Combining authority, relevance, and reliability, this title includes new therapies and guidelines alongside 'clinical pearl' and 'tricky situation' boxes to aide readers in rare or complicated situations. This is the must-have guide for all trainees and specialist nurses in endocrinology and diabetes.
