Medical Resources

As a medical practioner there is so much information to be aware of when making diagnosis and treatment plans for patients. The countless years of education and practice can make you an excellant physician but even the best need to have a resource to turn to for guidance and safety to ensure every patients details are reviewed. It is important to have access to drug interactions, symptoms and other medical data that is now available from Epocrates in an online database of information. You may have a patient present with Acute COPD Exacerbation and you want to know what the best treatment to suggest which depends on the cause whether it is related to lifestyle (smoking) or bacterial, with the use of the software you can find information quickly on both and decide on the best treatment and also if prescribing find information on possible drug interactions.

This announcement was paid for by Epocrates.
