Little Black Book of Primary Care provides mobile healthcare practitioners with the latest in trusted clinical information for more accurate, confident and informed decision-making at point-of-care.
Concise descriptions of diseases and conditions relevant to docs in "doc talk" language, with up-to-date as well as classic references. This latest update is based on the 6th edition and 2011 print edition with additional features, enhanced functionality and ongoing updates.
Little Black Book of Primary Care is intended as a very portable manual with heavily referenced, concise, practical, clinically relevant information. It contains usual clinical approaches, personal "pearls", as well as and most importantly, literature-debated issues.
