No longer in print, the textbook seeding WiserWiki contains in-depth information on a full-range of medical problems, conditions and diseases encountered in the practices of family physicians, general internists, medical and surgical subspecialists, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.
Elsevier, the world's leading publisher of science and h ealth information, has announced the beta launch of WiserWiki a wiki that allows board-certified physicians to collaboratively contribute and update medical information online. The site, which is open to and viewable by the public, is seeded with content from The Textbook of Primary Care Medicine (3rd Edition, 2001) by John Noble, M.D. The textbook was published by Mosby, an Elsevier imprint, and was one of Elsevier's best-selling medical textbooks.
"WiserWiki is another example of Elsevier's commitment to develop innovative tools for medical professionals," said Scott Virkler, Vice President, Business Development at Elsevier. "With WiserWiki we're providing a trusted forum for physicians to collaborate and contribute professional-level medical content that's viewable by members of the public."
