The disease-specific section is written by four authors whose expertise covers the whole breadth of diseases included in the book. All authors have contributed to national guidelines (e.g. British Committee for Standards in Haematology, BCSH) and are experts in the evidence base that exists for each topic. The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Haematologyoffers a concise and logical approach to caring for patients with diseases of the blood.
