Production of The Core Content Review of Family Medicine
The Core Content Review of Family Medicine is a joint production of the Connecticut and Ohio Academies of Family Physicians. Our material is authored by a national faculty of physicians and other healthcare professionals. Our faculty incorporate a wide spectrum of clinical, research, teaching, and administrative experience into their material. An evidence-based approach to clinical topics is emphasized throughout the writing and editing of The Core Content Review of Family Medicine. All material is peer-reviewed prior to publication. The Core Content Review of Family Medicine is funded entirely by the Ohio and Connecticut chapters of the American Academy of Family Physicians. No outside funding or advertising is accepted.
The editorial staff and the Executive Board, composed of family physicians, ensure that The Core Content Review of Family Medicine continues to improve upon its long-standing tradition of excellence in medical education for family physicians and other primary care physicians.
Every effort has been made by the Executive Board, the contributing authors, and the editorial staff of The Core Content Review of Family Medicine to ensure that the medical information, drug doses, drug recommendations, and other information pertinent to the clinical practice of medicine that is presented in The Core Content Review of Family Medicine are accurate and represent the current practice standards in most areas of the United States at the time of publication. However, since the practice of medicine is constantly evolving and since medical care must be individualized according to patient needs and desires and to both local and regional standards of care, physicians and other healthcare professionals who use The Core Content Review of Family Medicine are advised to consult the prescribing information of all drugs for recommendations of uses and dosages as approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), to apply local and regional standards in the care of patients, and to individualize care according to the needs and desires of each patient. Emerging approaches to patient management and "off label" (not FDA approved) uses of drugs are sometimes included in our material. Again, individual physicians must use their own knowledge of their patients and clinical judgment to make medical decisions with their patients. The Core Content Review of Family Medicine is designed to be a continuing medical education program for physicians and other healthcare professionals. It is not designed to be used as a replacement for professional medical services for individuals seeking medical care or advice.
