The Sanford Guide Web Edition, an online reference guide for treating infectious diseases, will be available at all VA Medical Centers in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, per an announcement from VA.
The Web resource provides focused, up-to-date and evidence-based information on treatment of infectious diseases. Its topics are organized by disease or clinical condition and by organism. Each topic contains treatment recommendations that link to comprehensive anti-infective drug information, augmented by guidance for antimicrobial prophylaxis, exposure management and immunizations.
The Sanford Guide Web Edition is powered by a robust search engine that affords quick access to specific topics. It is used as a teaching tool in medical schools, including the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences and the U.S. military medical school.
