Is there an epidemic of pandemics? Does climate change effect our health? Will AI ever replace doctors?

Questions about medicine have always been central to society, but what can they tell us about our future well- being in a 21st-century world of antibiotic resistance and anti-vaxxers, organ transplants and gene therapies, miracle drugs and magic bullets?

Short Cuts: Medicine provides the map you need to explore the latest thinking in ethics, practice, treatment and prevention. Incisive questions prompt 'short cut' diagnoses written by experts in their field, with each one the setting-off point for instructions to help you plot your path through the medical maze.

With 'one-stop' graphics visualizing a theory or idea for each topic, and 'route map' glossaries explaining key words and connections, Short Cuts: Medicine will help you navigate the mysteries of the modern medical world.
