About Urgent Care Textbooks
Physician leaders, Lee A. Resnick, M.D., F.A.A.F.P and John Shufeldt, M.D., J.D., F.A.C.E.P. have collaborated to fill an ever growing need in the urgent care industry: to create educational materials with the highest relevancy, utility, and credibility. In the textbooks, each chapter is authored by a leading urgent care physician or clinic operator, in their areas of expertise. The books provide a thorough and quick reference guide in both the application of clinical practice and the management of an urgent care center. They were developed specifically for the standardized training and continuing education of healthcare professionals in Urgent Care Medicine. In each program, emphasis is placed on evaluation and management, diagnostics, clinical decision-making and disposition management for common urgent care presentations. Additional emphasis is placed on applying evidence based medicine, and established "best practices" as well as being alert to the potentially dangerous or life-threatening signs and symptoms of common presenting problems.
