ACP Smart Medicine (SM) & AHFS DI Essentials

Also known as ACP Smart Medicine

ACP PIER is produced by the American College of Physicians and is an online clinical tool. It is a decision-support tool designed for rapid point-of-care delivery of regularly updated evidence-based guidance for clinicians. Modules focus on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. The disease-based modules are PIER's core. Each module presents a series of guidance statements and practice recommendations, supported by more detailed levels of pertinent rationale and evidence. There are links to abstracts and the full text of carefully selected references; to a comprehensive drug resource; other ACP knowledge resources including its guidelines, MKSAP, Annals of Internal Medicine, ACP Journal Club, and Clinical Evidence; and other resources including PubMed and various Web sites. Tables, figures, algorithms, and video and audio clips are also included.
