About the Authors
  • Emergency Care of the Abused is intended to assist the health care practitioner in managing the acute care of abused patients. This accessible introduction is not intended to be an exhaustive study of each topic, but a quick reference and practical guide for those in the clinical arena who see such patients. The full range of potential abuses that a health care practitioner may see is covered here. Several topics not commonly included in textbooks, such as trafficking, torture, and cultural influence are included. Each chapter has goals and objectives to maximize educational reading on the topic, photographs and tables to assist the clinician, legal aspects of the emergency situation, and quick reference pages to assist the practitioner emergently dealing with an abused patient.

    • Quick reference, easy to read format, with guides at the end of each chapter
    • Multiple images to illustrate topics, with both paired mimics and abuse photos
    • Includes topics rarely discussed in textbooks elsewhere, such as torture and trafficking

    Reviews & endorsements

    "A strength of the book is its attention to the abuse of immigrants, which highlights cultural issues to which clinicians must be sensitive during the acute medical care encounter, such as language discordances, immigration status, legal status, and differences in cultural practices. Examples are provided of culturally based practices that can interfere with communication and patient care, such as restrictions related to direct eye contact or diet. There are likewise interesting discussions about trafficking and torture, including contemporary issues such as the influence of globalization and cultural values on human trafficking and the role of medical and psychological professionals in the treatment and maltreatment of detainees...In summary, Emergency Care of the Abused is an easy-to-read reference text about how to recognize and provide immediate medical treatment for different types of abuse. To our knowledge, it is the first of its kind to address the breadth of abuse issues that general practitioners, emergency medicine physicians, pediatricians, and others may encounter in their clinical practice."
    --Journal of the American Medical Association
