Evidence-Based Medicine for PDAs: A Guide for Practice is the first text to give medical practitioners and students the practical basics of PDAs and evidence-based medicine applications necessary for excellent, cost effective patient care. Offered in a clear and applicable format, this book covers information on the latest treatments, necessary equipment, basic software, reducing medical errors, and medical coding. Health care providers can review diagnoses, read about the latest therapy, check for harmful drug interactions, and obtain preventative information, even between patient examinations. Organized by an instructional case-based approach with an accompanying demonstration CD-ROM, this guide provides an interactive visual and auditory experience to accomodate all types of learners. A great resource to help medical educators, students and practicing clinicians integrate EBM into their daily patient care in a practical way.
