Oxford Textbook of Medicine, high value OUP e-textbooks, available on CKN

You are here

CKN users now enjoy access to the Oxford Textbook of Medicine; the go-to textbook in general medicine offering both perspective and practical guidance on clinical management and prevention of disease.

Oxford Textbook of Medicine is published online and has been regularly updated for many years, but the production of a new and very substantially updated 6th edition provides a moment to reflect on what has changed in Medicine, and what has not, in recent years. This latest edition considers exactly what modern medicine has to offer patients and their doctors. Advances in biomedical sciences, the broader context of health and disease, patients and their expectations, and access to medical knowledge are some of the key areas examined in detail among the 30 sections of the book. Sections include introductory sections on patients and their treatment, background to medicine, cell biology, and immunological mechanisms, as well as more subject-specific sections such as infectious diseases, neurological disorders, cardiovascular disorders, rheumatology, and the kidney, as well as many more.

Complementing Oxford Textbook of Medicine CKN has recently added a number of high value e-texts from Oxford University Press. These have been specifically chosen in support of QH’s efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, and provide Queensland clinicians with a uniquely valuable content collection:

  • Oxford Textbook of Infectious Disease Control
  • Oxford Textbook of Critical Care
  • The ESC Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine
  • Oxford Textbook of Clinical Nephrology
  • Oxford Textbook of Palliative Medicine

Find these titles in All eJournals & eBooks or find the Oxford Medicine Online link under the Research Databases menu.
