No matter how far we go with technology, one publication will always sit on reference desks at libraries and this will be the Physicians’ Desk Reference.
Thomson Healthcare, the publisher of Physicians’ Desk Reference has launched PDRhealth.com, a website for consumers based on the same information platform used for the creation of the Physicians’ Desk Reference database.
The difference this time comes with more user-friendly information resources about Drugs & Supplements, including brand-name, generic drugs, side effects, dosages, and alternative therapies.
PDRhealth.com’s interactive decision tools allow consumers to see the "common treatment options, explore clinical trials, and look up drugs and supplements that treat the condition."
And last but not least, the new website has preventative health resources like cholesterol and risk factor analyzer and a lot of other new tools that will be installed over time.
