Editors: Patricia I. Eddington and Umberto V. Mastolli
Book Description:
Advances in medicine as well as computers and electronics have made possible remarkable gains in our understanding of diseases on all levels from the theoretical to the clinical. In addition, the population can instantly access many types of health knowledge online. Blending the old and new knowledge and getting it a public under relentless attack from their own insurance companies and seeing doctors under non-stop pressure to see more patients and order less tests, have created a situation where an understanding or health knowledge by many is essential yet often worse than the ailment. This new book brings together research in trying to bring order to a volatile mix.
