The following are clinical topics covered in greater depth than the typical posts on this site. They are meant only as a guide–consider them as one source of information in making your own independent decisions about clinical issues, and not as the final word on the subjects. Consider also the Articles of Note series on this site for a look at what’s available in the recently published peer-reviewed journals (you can click on it as one of the topics listed in the left hand column).
Please note the dates next to some of the guide topics. If there is no date, I am working on updating it, but it’s likely several years old, so please keep that in mind when reviewing materials. While I try to keep everything current on this site, I haven’t gotten to all of them yet.
