Summary:BACK COVER COPY OF 1E: Does the Internet offer anything beyond endless shopping at cybermalls, a plethora of computer games, and a worldwide virtual clubhouse for computer nerds? Is there anything out there for nurses and allied health professionals? As Margaret Edwards' book THE INTERNET FOR NURSES AND ALLIED HEALTH PROFESSIONALS, demonstrates, the answer is a resounding "YES!" This book is a primer to the Internet for those who have little or no computer experience. In plain language, it describes the Internet and how it works, including how to use various Internet tools. In addition, this book provides an extensive listing of health-related Internet resources, from an on-line version of the American Journal of Nursing, to the "Virtual Nursing Centre." The reader will find this directory, complete with descriptions of each entry, a treasure trove of the information resources available for Health Care professionals on the Internet. When you need to know how others have dealt with a proposed health care change, you can't wait three months for the next conference or nine months for the next book to come out -- that's when you discover the real power of the Internet: it lets you exchange information with peers around the world instantly, giving you the knowledge edge to keep your nursing or health care practice professional and progressive.
