Resource: Therapeutic Guidelines – http://www.tg.org.au/
Therapeutic Guidelines is a resource from Australia. It has a set of guidelines on several topics, written principally for prescribers (general practitioners and trainee physicians in particular) to provide clear, practical, succinct and up-to-date therapeutic information, for the management of patients with specific conditions. They cover all common disorders seen in clinical practice. Topics and sections are arranged according to diagnostic entities. Each section gives sufficient surrounding information to orient the reader, followed by succinct and explicit recommendations for therapy. The website specifies that the Guidelines are not primarily meant to instruct, but rather to assist prescribers ensure their patients receive optimum treatment. If one does not need the whole database, then one could get books on specific specialty guidelines.
Therapeutic Guidelines Limited (TGL) is an independent not-for-profit organisation. Its aim is to promote the quality use of medicines.
