Urgent Care Emergencies: Avoiding the Pitfalls and Improving the Outcomes (0470657723) cover image
This text was developed to help providers who evaluate low acuity complaints in any setting. The aim is to highlight common pitfalls in the management of those seemingly minor illnesses or injuries, which if not identified early or if managed incorrectly can have devastating and longterm consequences. This text will bring the provider's attention to high-risk aspects of chief complaints that may be encountered in a variety of low-acuity settings.

Focused on high-risk pitfalls practitioners may encounter in everyday practice, each of the book's chapters is written by an expert chosen for his/her expertise in their respective topics. Chapters include clinical pearls for improving patients’ outcomes.
