Now, more than ever, raising awareness, knowledge, and treatment competency of the healthcare workforce are needed so that these diseases can be quickly diagnosed and effectively managed. These textbooks typically provide information in chapters on physiology, reproduction, ecology, taxononomy, and so on. The eggs are killed by ironing clothes but for many people that may be impractical.
