  • Better Eyesight Without Glasses By Dr W H Bates ()
    An updated and revised edition detailing the 'Bates method', a technique which claims to the retrain the eye so contact lenses and glasses are no longer needed. The method aims to restore sight by using exercises to relax the eye muscles before retraining the eyes to focus effectively. Prescription glasses act as a prop for the muscles in your eyes and so, over time, the muscles actually get weaker. In fact, in the long term, glasses can only ever weaken your eyes. But, with the Bates Method you can retrain the eye muscles to work again, and perhaps even learn to do without glasses altogether. The Bates Method works two-folds, firstly with a series of exercises that relax and soothe the eye muscles, and secondly, retrains the relaxed eyes to focus effectively. The exercises are simple and easy to follow, and millions around the world have improved their vision using them. The book has influenced whole generations of people who believe that wearing glasses is the best way to improve your eyesight.

  • Cancer: Causes, Prevention and Treatment By Dr. O P Jaggi ()
    Medical science today has the capability and technology to control and largely prevent cancer. However, we need to overcome certain basic attitudes towards cancer- fear and procrastination, for fear causes delay in seeking expert medical attention which may be fatal. A well-informed public and aggressive medical treatment are essentials in our fight against cancer. The book seeks to inform you of the vital facts about cancer. It deals with causes of cancer, its symptoms, methods of treatment and disease management. The greatest single truth about cancer engima is that most cancers, when detected and treated early, are curable. Prevention, awareness and timely detection are the underlying and recurrent themes of the book.

    The author explains common cancers, their symtoms, the diagnostic tests and discusses available treatment. Recognising that some treatments have undesirable side-effects, these are described and their management discussed.

  • Essentials of Medical Statistics By Betty Kirkwood ()
    Publication Date: April 15, 2001 | ISBN-10: 0865428719 | ISBN-13: 978-0865428713 | Edition: 2

    Blackwell Publishing is delighted to announce that this book has been Highly Commended in the 2004 BMA Medical Book Competition. Here is the judges' summary of this book:

    "This is a technical book on a technical subject but presented in a delightful way. There are many books on statistics for doctors but there are few that are excellent and this is certainly one of them. Statistics is not an easy subject to teach or write about. The authors have succeeded in producing a book that is as good as it can get. For the keen student who does not want a book for mathematicians, this is an excellent first book on medical statistics."

    Essential Medical Statistics is a classic amongst medical statisticians. An introductory textbook, it presents statistics with a clarity and logic that demystifies the subject, while providing a comprehensive coverage of advanced as well as basic methods.

    The second edition of Essential Medical Statistics has been comprehensively revised and updated to include modern statistical methods and modern approaches to statistical analysis, while retaining the approachable and non-mathematical style of the first edition. The book now includes full coverage of the most commonly used regression models, multiple linear regression, logistic regression, Poisson regression and Cox regression, as well as a chapter on general issues in regression modelling. In addition, new chapters introduce more advanced topics such as meta-analysis, likelihood, bootstrapping and robust standard errors, and analysis of clustered data.

    Aimed at students of medical statistics, medical researchers, public health practitioners and practising clinicians using statistics in their daily work, the book is designed as both a teaching and a reference text. The format of the book is clear with highlighted formulae and worked examples, so that all concepts are presented in a simple, practical and easy-to-understand way. The second edition enhances the emphasis on choice of appropriate methods with new chapters on strategies for analysis and measures of association and impact.

  • Health Care Delivery Under Conflict How Prepared is West Africa? By Adedoyin Soyibo ()

    The broad objective of the study is to appraise the readiness of West African countries to provide health care in post-conflict environments. It is particularly concerned with the building of sustainable national and regional human, material and institutional capacity in order to confront specific health problems induced by conflict.

    The conflict countries under consideration are Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Cote d’Ivoire and Sierra Leone. Factors considered are the health impacts of armed conflicts and how these are addressed; the health status of post-conflict countries; epidemiological patterns; and the overall linkages between health, poverty and conflict. The study further considers the contributions of international and statutory agencies, NGOS, and regional bodies, such as ECOWAS, and the West African Health Organisation; and the provision of legal and institutional frameworks for health care. It ends with several recommendations and conclusions, notably that West African countries are not adequately prepared for health care delivery either under conflict or post-conflict; and that ECOWAS and agencies at regional level are not equipped to deal with the problems either.

    The Programme on Global Security and Sustainability of the John D and Catherine T MacArthur Foundation funded the research that gave rise to this publication.

    Adedoyin Soyibo is Professor of Economics, and Director of the Health Policy and Training and Research Programme and the Department of Economics, University of Ibadan, Nigeria. He has worked in the field of health economics for several international organisations such as the World Bank, IMF, World Health Organisation and International Labour Organisation.
