  • Description

We’ve all heard the questions…asked with urgency and genuine need. “Does the flu vaccine cause the flu?” “How do I find a LASIK surgeon?” “Will Echinacea treat my daughter’s cold?” This new consumer-focused handy reference volume will give your staff a reliable, authoritative resource to suggest when patrons come to you with health questions.

Each entry provides a clear, easy-to-understand explanation of medical conditions and treatment, and provides critical call-out facts to support better understanding. In addition, your patrons can use the handy “Ask the Experts” information to find additional, authoritative information and answers to their specific questions. They’ll also discover tips, checklists for questions to ask healthcare professionals, charts and other easy-access information to address their specific concerns and provide important background information as they determine the next appropriate steps for their care.
