Top Customer Reviews
This book would be invaluable only because it tells you which guidelines are currently used for each disease state, making them easy to find. The synopsis of the actual recommendations from each of of guidelines is just a nice bonus.
I use it as follows:
1) Encounter a prescription that seems clinically off
2) Check book for disease states that the drug is used to treat (9/10 times I can find the information I need in the synopsis in the book, so I stop here)
3) Pull guideline book references, study the relevant parts
4) Either confirm the propriety of the prescription or call the prescriber if there is a clinically significant variance from the guideline, have synopsis right there to quote if necessary.
