Article Abstract

Because this piece has no abstract, we have provided for your benefit the first 3 sentences of the full text.

In a time of explosive expansion of clinical research, busy clinicians are increasingly turning tocollections of abstracted information to help them keep abreast of clinically relevant concepts in themedical literature. Clinical Evidence has gained notoriety as such a resource, perhaps as much for itsuser-friendly analog and digital formats as for its association with one of the most reputable medicaljournals (British Medical Journal) from the predigital age. In my approach to reading the chapter titled”Depressive Disorders,” I chose to envision an elderly patient suffering from a unipolar depressiveepisode and used the aforementioned chapter from Clinical Evidence, Issue 4, to attempt to answerclinical questions that might arise during his/her care.
