Hypertension, December issue of “In The Clinic”

Posted by iskanbasal on December 16, 2008

Annals of internal medicine has this very interesting and educational section directed to the physician in practice: “In The Clinics”. Since the beginning of 2007 they have published many important monthly issues. Each is accompanied with important tool kit that take the reader to many added resources:

“In the Clinic is a monthly feature in Annals of Internal Medicine introduced in January 2007 that focuses on practical management of patients with common clinical conditions. It offers evidence-based answers to frequently asked questions about screening, prevention, diagnosis, therapy, and patient education and provides physicians with tools to improve the quality of care.

The foundation for In the Clinic is the evidence-based clinical guidance in the American College of Physicians’ electronic point-of care decision-making resource, PIER (Physicians Information and Education Resource). In developing In the Clinic, Annals editors draw upon other ACP knowledge products, such as MKSAP (Medical Knowledge Self-Assessment Program), as well as outside resources, including practice guidelines and quality-of-care measures. In the Clinic integrates this material on broad topics in a relatively brief, easy-to-read format with an emphasis on practical measures that can be readily integrated into practice.”

This month’s issue is about HYPERTENSION.
