Philadelphia, PA, October 20, 2014

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the availability of Clinics Collections, the first of a new series of multidisciplinary, general medical reference digests targeted to a wide variety of healthcare practitioners and professionals. Clinics Collections integrates updated content from Clinics Review Articles to provide a succinct and current overview of specific, highly prevalent medical conditions and significant medical developments.

"Clinics Collections help fill a content gap for many healthcare professionals and providers, particularly general practitioners who are caring for patients with these widespread conditions and their associated co-morbidities," said Adrianne Brigido, Publisher, Elsevier Clinical Solutions. "Clinics Collections is a continuation of Elsevier's commitment to provide trusted content that medical professionals rely on to support optimal patient care and outcomes."

Clinics Collections provide current clinical content targeted to specific practice areas. Current and soon to be released titles in 2014 include Type II Diabetes Mellitus, Asthma, Obesity, and Pain Management, which impact millions of people worldwide.

Clinics Collections are designed for a wide variety of healthcare practitioners, including:

  • The general medical practitioner, including internists, family physicians, physician assistants, nurses, and nurse practitioners that are seeking in-depth reviews on conditions affecting their patient population;
  • Specialists who want to gather further information on their specific area of expertise;
  • Healthcare professionals (such as payer executives, drug and device product managers, and public health professionals) for which specific medical content may be needed.

All Clinics Collections titles are published under the direction of Dr. Joel Heidelbaugh, MD, FAAFP, FACG, Professor, Family Medicine and Urology at University of Michigan Medical School.

Clinics Collections are available as eBooks at www.elsevierhealth.com or www.inkling.com. Hard-copy editions will also be available at www.elsevierhealth.com and at industry events and conferences, including the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) Assembly in Washington, D.C., October 21−25.
