The pharmacotherapeutic compass is published by the Dutch Health Care Institute (Zorginstituut Nederland). Traditionally, the compass is one of the most frequently used works of references for health care professionals with regard to treatment guidance, dosage, warnings, side effects and reimbursement for medications.
Prescriptor users can leave this reference work on the shelf. Nor is there any need for online searches, because each medication name on the screen has an eFK icon. A simple mouse click takes the user to the relevant information on the pharmacotherapeutic compass website - www.fkzin.nl.
