The Washington Manual of Ambulatory Therapeutics
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2002 - Medical - 750 pages
This new Washington Manual is an ideal quick reference for house officers and practitioners involved in ambulatory care of adult patients. Prepared by house officers, it has the same front-lines practicality as the world-famous Washington Manual of Medical Therapeutics.
Chapters cover outpatient topics that receive little coverage in the original Washington Manual —lipid disorders; complaint-specific therapeutics (e.g. cough); office management of cancer patients (including screening, hospice, and supportive care); musculoskeletal pain; women's and men's health; dermatologic problems; anxiety and mood disorders; and dementia. Emphasis is on what the clinician needs to know at key decision points in a case.
Paperback edition available only in selected countries. Please check with your local representative or distributor.
The Washington Manual of Ambulatory Therapeutics is also available electronically for use in a PDA.
