NORWALK, Conn., Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US announces that ConsultantLive delivers practical clinical "take-home" educational content to primary care clinicians in a format that respects the time constraints of busy office practice.
Primary care physicians shoulder a heavy load when it comes to health care delivery: they work long hours to care for sometimes dozens of patients a day with a host of complex medical problems. There's not a lot of time for educational reading.
ConsultantLive addresses the information needs of these clinicians by providing short (1 page) clinical cases with helpful diagnostic and treatment tips that can really be used in daily practice. The web site's Photoclinic cases are based on the premise that a single good photo equals (in educational terms) 1000 words. New cases are added regularly.
Some recent samples from the photo-rich Photoclinic archive:
- Lhermitte-Duclos Disease
- Warfarin-induced Skin Necrosis
- Fixed Drug Eruption
UBM Medica US and ConsultantLive also offer the Photoclinic experience as a free mobile app. PhotoClinic Mobile can be downloaded from the App store by clicking here.
