The first edition of the Toxicology Handbook provided the platform for an alternative approach to risk management and risk stratification in evaluating and treating patients with toxicological syndromes. It is written and edited by 7 of the 16 clinical toxicologists working in Australasia.
The authors have had excellent feedback from the first edition and have taken on board suggestions from reviewers, clinicians and readers to make enhancements for the second edition.
