THE MERCK MANUAL MEDICAL LIBRARY: The Merck Manual of Diagnosis and Therapy
Important: The authors, reviewers, and editors of this book have made extensive efforts to ensure that treatments, drugs, and dosage regimens are accurate and conform to the standards accepted at the time of publication. However, constant changes in information resulting from continuing research and clinical experience, reasonable differences in opinions among authorities, unique aspects of individual clinical situations, and the possibility of human error in preparing such an extensive text require that the reader exercise individual judgment when making a clinical decision and, if necessary, consult and compare information from other sources. In particular, the reader is advised to check the product information provided by the manufacturer of a drug product before prescribing or administering it, especially if the drug is unfamiliar or is used infrequently.

Best Evidence Topics (BETs) Introduction Why EBM? Medical practice has always been informed by many things: textbooks, personal experience (good and bad), scientific research, patient expectations, teaching from senior doctors, colleagues opinions, old wives' tales... the list goes on. Every clinical decision is based on a combination of these factors, acting to differing degrees upon the individual clinican. The trouble is, of course, that many of these sources of information are far from trustworthy. Many of the traditions within medicine, handed down through generations of doctors, are simply wrong, and many more miss the mark of the best practice. Personal experience can be helpful to clinicians, but it can also bias their judgements detrimentally.

CDI + ICD10 = CMI Section Sponsored by: Case Mix Index (CMI) is a top area of concern for clinical documentation improvement (CDI) specialists and programs. And when ICD-10 goes live, CMI may be your fastest barometer for measuring effective, or ineffective, clinical documentation.
