About this book

Introduction

Although infectious disease mortality is decreasing, the disease burden remains substantial as many new infections have been identified and some well-established infectious diseases have reemerged. This book provides an easy-to-use, practical, yet comprehensive resource for family practitioners to use in the daily struggle against infectious diseases. It discusses vaccines and preventive measures as well as information on how to reduce the incidence of antimicrobial-resistant organisms by judiciously prescribing antibiotics and informing patients about the appropriate use of these agents.
