What’s new: eTG complete March release
Therapeutic Guidelines is pleased to announce a number of functional improvements to eTG complete and practice-changing updates included in the March release.
A new topic has been added on coronavirus disease (COVID-19), to provide subscribers with links to up-to-date sources of public health advice.
To complement last year’s changes to the search function, the March 2020 release of eTG complete includes changes to how topics are organised that will help you find the information you need more easily. You’ll find the results for searches on bites, skin infections and herpes infections are now more intuitive.
To help clinicians find the appropriate antibiotic regimen for a patient with sepsis or septic shock, tools to aid navigation have been added to the sepsis topics ‘Principles of managing sepsis and septic shock’, ‘Empirical regimens for sepsis or septic shock’ and ‘Directed therapy for bloodstream infections, including sepsis and septic shock’. The changes include a table summarising antibiotic regimens for sepsis or septic shock when the source of infection is not apparent, and more links to sepsis advice throughout the guidelines.
