Since its first publication, almost two decades ago, A System of Orthopaedic Medicine has proven to be a reliable resource and guide for those clinicians working in the field of orthopaedic medicine who assess and treat the effects of musculoskeletal pain. This third edition remains focused on clinical reasoning and diagnosis, with detailed guidance on palpation of the anatomical structures and the correct performance of each therapeutic technique. Following the ‘System’, the clinician first completes a systematic clinical assessment of the joints involved, and then, after interpreting the results, groups the disorders and conditions into clinical syndromes. Finally, the natural history and the conservative treatment of each condition are discussed accordingly. NEW! Building on the previous edition, A System of Orthopaedic Medicine now comes with access to online resources designed to support and enhance the learning experience of each and every clinician using the book. The new edition has been streamlined for easier access and handling by transferring all the applied anatomy chapters, references, links and other selected chapters onto the online resources.

Health investigation and treatment have moved from a clinician-centred approach to a patient-centred approach during the past few decades. Patients are now rightly regarded as empowered and informed users of health services, not passive recipients. Motivated by this philosophical shift, this new book identifies the key issues underpinning the complete delivery of ‘good’ patient care and considers their application in the medical radiation sciences. Taking a UK/European perspective, the authors examine how a holistic approach is related to legislation, human rights and perceived patient needs. Medical imaging and radiotherapy are front line services experienced by vast numbers of patients with acute and chronic medical conditions, including trauma and cancer. The book includes coverage of behavioural science and health psychology together with practical applications such as safe manual handling, infection control and radiation safety. This provides the reader with a comprehensive understanding of what contributes to the patient’s experience in diagnostic imaging and radiotherapy. It also considers other aspects of the patient experience, such as inter-professional team working, disability, communication, clinical procedures and practice.

Outcomes . . .familiar in medicine fields, but only in recent decades becoming more of an issue for surgeons . . .the highly subspecialized nature of the surgical profession and breadth of procedures along with variance in patient population creates a challenge in achieving useful, informative outcomes. Here, in this issue of Clinics in Plastic Surgery, the focus is on evidence-based practice and outcomes in plastic surgery, spanning the major areas of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Outcomes as guidance for the surgeon’s decision regarding approaches and techniques for procedures is the approach. Some of the topics covered are: Measuring Outcomes in Aesthetic Surgery; Measuring Outcomes in Craniofacial and Pediatric Surgery; Measuring Outcomes in Hand Surgery; How to Link Outcomes Data to Quality Initiatives in Plastic Surgery; along with How to Use the Outcomes Questionnaire, Pearls and Pitfalls; among others. Guest Editors Kevin Chung and Andrea Pusic lead this review. Dr. Chung is involved with structuring evidence-based practice and research in hand surgery to derive the best evidence to guide treatment for upper extremity conditions and he developed the Michigan Hand Outcomes Questionnaire. Dr Pusic developed the BREAST-Q, which measures satisfaction and quality-of-life outcomes among breast reconstruction patients. Out of the BREAST-Q has come the FACE-Q, which provides a clinically useful patient-reported outcome measure of satisfaction and quality of life following elective surgical and non-surgical facial rejuvenation.
