Topics in Evidence-Based Pharmacy Practice is a continually updated collection of
features and editorials that review, examine, and comment on the overload of information
in the pharmacy field. Features are reviews of clinical trials, studies, and guidelines
that examine the validity of approach, methodology, results, and recommendations,
and make recommendations that can affect decision making. Editorials allow leading
and emerging minds in the field express their opinion on the ever-changing world
of pharmacy practice. Read more...
Currently, over 2,000,000 articles are published each year and that number doubles
every 6 to 7 years. It is impossible for busy clinicians to keep current with this
information overload. The editors and contributing authors of AccessPharmacy’s Topics
in Evidence-Based Pharmacy Practice systematically review the contents of the major
medical and pharmacy journals. When landmark trials are published, these authors
will carefully review the results so the reader will understand whether this new
information is relevant to clinical practice. The resulting feature is not a synopsis,
but a critical appraisal that includes recommendations that can influence decision
making. From time to time, McGraw-Hill has asked these same authors to contribute
editorials that provide their take on the ever-changing world of pharmacy practice.
McGraw-Hill has carefully chosen the editors and contributing authors to reflect
the numerous clinical specialties in pharmacy. Their years of clinical practice
along with their training in evidence-based medicine ensure the high quality of
Topics in Evidence-Based Pharmacy Practice. We believe that you will value the insights
provided by Topics in Evidence-Based Pharmacy Practice.
