Comprehensive coverage on all options available to the self-treating patient. This worldwide standard on self-care and nonprescription products uses an evidence-based approach to establish the safety and effectiveness of self-care options for particular disorders. The book's interactive approach teaches students how to assess a disorder and recommend self-care options based on clinical studies, and patient factors and preferences. The 13th edition provides practitioners with quick access to OTC drug information, assessment techniques, treatment algorithms, assessment Q&A, case studies, and patient counseling information. An index lists major topics of each disorder, as well as generic and trade names of nonprescription products and dietary supplements.
