“Today, MedlinePlus released a new version of the A.D.A.M. Medical Encyclopedia http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/encyclopedia.htmlthat includes approximately 400 new Patient Instruction pages, covering pre-operative information and instructions, discharge instructions, self-care instructions, and questions to ask your doctor.
The Patient Instruction pages are available in both English and Spanish, and you will be able to find them in the MedlinePlus search engine and A-Z index pages for the encyclopedia. Additionally, you will see links to related Patient Instructions in the side-bar of many encyclopedia articles. Hope you find them useful. Naomi
