Award winning book co-edited by Rutgers College of Nursing Dean updated with new information

(NEWARK, N.J., June, 20, 2007) -- The award winning book, Emerging Infectious Diseases: Trends and Issues, co-edited by Felissa R. Lashley, Rutgers College of Nursing dean and professor, and Jerry D. Durham, chancellor and professor of nursing at Allen College, Waterloo, Iowa, has been published in a second edition that provides new and updated information on emerging, re-emerging and antibiotic-resistant infectious diseases that continue to increase at an alarming rate around the world.

Written for a wide range of health professionals, particularly nurses, this second edition, published by Springer Publishing Co., provides a comprehensive overview of these diseases, their epidemiology, clinical manifestations, prevention and treatment. Contributed by a multidisciplinary team of nurses, physicians, public health, and infectious disease specialists, the book includes material on the most recent and important new emerging infectious diseases.

Each chapter is illustrated with clinical case examples to demonstrate the pitfalls in differential diagnosis and explain proper management and treatment. The book includes appendices that provide critical reference information for each of the bacterial, viral, fungal, and parasitic diseases.

This book provides readers the knowledge to better understand the factors contributing to the emergence and reemergence of infectious diseases and microbial resistance in a broad context, said Lashley, who is also the interim director of the Nursing Center for Bioterrorism and Emerging Infectious Diseases Preparedness at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. We live in a global community in which the health of developed and developing nations is intertwined. In this worldwide community, infectious diseases can spread rapidly around the world, making international surveillance and control of emerging infections vital to world health.
