This innovative and fully interactive guide to clinical rheumatology contains a wealth of multimedia material and provides an absorbing introduction suitable for medical students, general practitioners and trainees in rheumatology. Interactive case histories and quizzes - structured according to ability - engage the user in an active learning process which is in sharp contrast to traditional rheumatology texts. The application is heavily illustrated with clinical photographs, X-rays, explanatory diagrams, and images. In addition, specially prepared video clips clearly demonstrate physical examination and injection techniques. This interactive approach encourages directed self-learning and provides a unique, real-life simulation of the most common clinical problems encountered in the rheumatology clinic and the doctor's surgery. For more background information on rheumatological disorders, there is also very extensive and searchable database of articles on key topics in rheumatology. Taken together, these elements provide a self-contained introduction to the practice and study of rheumatology.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... fun to use and a rich source of basic material ... the CD-ROM Rheumatology Tutorial is an enjoyable adventure in cyber instruction. It is the best tutorial for this subspeciality that I have seen'. The Lancet
'The illustrations of entities like rashes, nail changes, eye pathology, and skeletal deformities are all superb ... Short of a professor on the telephone, this is the best way to learn.' The Lancet
'Interactive, multimedia guides on CD are on the increase. Do they really have the edge over the traditional text book? To judge by the Interactive Rheumatology Tutor, they do. If you've invested in a PC, it is not being used to the full unless you are using programs like this ... Screen layouts are generally attractive and easy to take in, with logical sequencing of presentations. Navigation was always easy and intuitive ... it is cheap at the price for the content. The same money would probably buy a couple of hefty textbooks, but given the choice I would prefer to buy this interactive CD for the practice library every time.' Bookshelf
