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.

The Washington Manual® of Ambulatory Therapeutics is also available electronically for use in a PDA.

The Washington Manual® is a registered mark belonging to Washington University in St. Louis to which international legal protection applies. The mark is used in this publication by LWW under license from Washington University.
