Show Summary Details


This chapter presents a 1993 commentary on medical abstracts. Clinicians must read about 200 articles and seventy editorials each month to keep abreast of current literature in internal medicine. It has been estimated that doctors reading one article a day would be, at the end of one year, fifty-five centuries behind on his/her reading. Guidelines have been proposed to help doctors choose among relevant published articles with direct clinical applications.
