MEDICAL

Use subjects in this section for scholarly works and/or for works aimed at medical or health care professionals.  For works aimed at nonprofessionals, use subjects in the HEALTH & FITNESS section.

Scholarly or professional works discussing diseases should be assigned subjects in this section that pertain to the branch of medicine that studies the disease in question (if no specific branch of medicine applies, use subjects in this section for the specific disease or type of disease): for example, a textbook about cancer would be assigned "MEDICAL / Oncology"; a clinical work on AIDS research would be assigned "MEDICAL / AIDS & HIV".  Subjects beginning with "HEALTH & FITNESS / Diseases" are intended for popular works that discuss preventing or coping with a specific disease (or type of disease) and/or for popular works describing the experiences of people with a specific disease (or type of disease).

Use "MEDICAL / History" for works on the history of medicine and use "MEDICAL / Medical History & Records" for works dealing with the medical history and records of patients.

Use "MEDICAL / Nursing / Home & Community Care" for works on nursing that occurs outside of a traditional medical facility (either at a patient's home or within the community) and use "MEDICAL / Nursing Home Care" for works on nursing homes and nursing home care.
