Microbiology: A Clinical Approach is a new and unique microbiology textbook for pre-nursing and allied health students. It is clinically-relevant and uses the theme of infection as its foundation,covering all standard topics taught in a pre-nursing/allied health microbiology course. The book follows a novel sequence and includes innovative chapters on emerging infectious diseases, antibiotic resistance, and bioterrorism not seen in other textbooks. Microbiology is student-friendly: its text, figures and electronic resources have been carefully designed to help students understand difficult concepts and to keep them interested in the material. The textbook is supported with a robust ancillary package for instructors which will easily allow them to incorporate the book’s new approach into their lectures. Students working towards careers in the healthcare professions will achieve success with Microbiology: A Clinical Approach.
“[Microbiology: A Clinical Approach] is true to its title, providing an up-to-date overview of infection from a clinical perspective….The main advantage of this book is that it is organized by systems: linking the clinical syndrome to its microbiology….The easily navigable chapters are enriched with outstanding illustrations and informative tables, and finished with salient summary points. In fact, the learning aids presented far exceeded my expectations for a textbook….The opening pages of the book contain a wealth of guidance on how to use these features, with further complimentary resources available on-line and in the form of accompanying software for those who wish to apply for them….it is an interesting book that has been well researched and the format makes it fun to read. In addition, it is relatively inexpensive as far medical textbooks go and thus it would be appropriate for individual purchase as well as library collections.”
