Patient-Centered Guides

Alan Rees Reviews

Alan Rees is a guru of consumer health titles for libraries. He is regularly featured in Majors' newsletter, A MAJOR Report on consumer health for librarians.

In the Fall 2001 A MAJOR Report, Alan Rees reviews two Patient-Centered Guides:

  • Lung Cancer: Making Sense of Diagnosis, Treatment, and Options
    "A highly readable guide to diagnosis and staging, finding the right treatment team, prognosis, treatment of non-small cell and small cell cancers, experiencing chemotherapy and radiotherapy, adverse effects of treatment, recurrence of disease, and clinical trials. Other topics covered include sexuality and fertility, reduction of stress, finance and employment issues, 'If All Treatments Have Failed,' and how to research your illness. Resources listed include organizations, print publications, and online sites."

  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: Helping Children & Adolescents
    "Waltz, who successfully coped with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) as a child and as a mother of two children diagnosed with OCD, offers an informative guide to the causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of the illness. An extensive list of treatment and resource centers, books, Web sites, and online discussion groups is particularly valuable."

Reviews of other recent Patient-Centered Guides may also be found in earlier editions of A MAJOR Report:

  • Adult Leukemia
    Named one of the "Best Consumer Health Information Resources" in the Consumer Health Information Source Book by Alan Rees, 6th Edition.

  • Your Child in the Hospital
    "An excellent, compact guide... Practical and supportive."

  • Pervasive Developmental Disorders
    "Highly recommended. ...Her intention in this book is to bring together the basic information needed by parents of a child with these disorders."

  • Colon & Rectal Cancer
    "Highly recommended. Lucid, in-depth coverage of what you need to know."

  • Childhood Cancer
    "An excellent, supportive, and well-needed book."

  • Childhood Leukemia
    "Highly recommended. In this new edition, Keene provides updates on treatment including bone marrow transplants, chemotherapy drugs, and methods of dealing with side effects. A pull-out record keeper allows patients to record treatment information for future caregivers. ...Poignant and supportive."
