British Medical Association Medical Book Competition:
The award for the 2004 Medical Book of the Year goes to A Practical Manual of Diabetic Footcare by Dr Michael E Edmonds, Alethea V M Foster and Lee J Saunders, published by Blackwell Publishing (2003). The book also won in the Endocrinology section. Michael Edmonds is a consultant physician and Alethea Foster is chief podiatrist at the Diabetic Foot Clinic at King’s College Hospital London; Lee Sanders is chief of the podiatry service at the Department of Veteran Affairs Medical Centre in Pennsylvania. A reviewer said the book was a “first class text” and “a practical guide with information and advice which is easy to access.
“We are naturally very excited at winning this prize, but most of all pleased for the diabetic foot community itself,” commented Mrs. Foster, co-author of the book. “We have very much enjoyed working on this book with Blackwell Publishing.”
Blackwell Publishing’s Director of Medical Publishing commented, “We are delighted with the news that A Practical Manual of Diabetic Footcare has won the 2004 BMA book of the year. It is great to have such recognition for what the authors have achieved in writing this remarkable book. They have taken a very important healthcare issue, with significant patient morbidity, and crafted a really practical book that will make a difference to those who care for the diabetic foot on a regular basis. I am particularly proud that we backed up their efforts with first-class production values.
