Another service that is well worth subscribing to… Alberta’s Tools for Practice, provided by ACFP. Today’s question is…
Digoxin: Old friend or best left on the shelf?
Clinical Question: Does digoxin change clinical outcomes for patients with congestive heart failure or atrial fibrillation?
I don’t want to be a spoiler but the answer is not what you probably think it is. Check out the TFP site. Here is more blurb from ACFP:
Tools for Practice is a biweekly article summarizing medical evidence with a focus on topical issues and practice modifying information. It is coordinated by G. Michael Allan, MD, CCFP and the content is written by practicing family physicians who are joined occasionally by a health professional from another medical specialty or health discipline. Each article is peer-reviewed, ensuring it maintains a high standard of quality, accuracy, and academic integrity.
The ACFP has supported the publishing and distribution of the Tools for Practice library since 2009. If you are not a member of the ACFP and would like to receive the TFP emails, please sign up for the distribution list at http://bit.ly/signupfortfp. Archived articles are available at no extra cost on the ACFP website.
And just like CMA’s POEMs service, you can claim CME credits for participating in these.
