Oxford PILs: Windows : Patient Information Leaflets and Self Help Groups
Written by GPs and reviewed by an independent panel, Oxford PILs offers a directory of 200 Patient Information Leaflets, 500 self help groups, and over 60 illustrations. It is designed as a resource to aid the consultation, to complement what has been discussed with the patient, and may even reduce the need to give a prescription. Leaflets and self help group information can be printed out and used to explain illnesses or clinical procedures. Personal annotations can also be added to images as required and output for the patient. Similarly, headers on the printouts can be customized for your own GP practice. Links are available from many leaflets to other relevant software packages such as Oxford Clinical Mentor.
