What a busy clinician needs to know for patient care

eTG complete is an industry standard resource used by clinical practitioners at the point of care. Our Pharmacy librarians Madeleine Bruwer and Mario Sos give the low-down on this resource.


Therapeutic Guidelines (eTG complete) provides unbiased, high quality, reputable guidelines for the treatment of common conditions observed in clinical practice.

Each guideline provides a broad overview of the disorder followed by recommendations for therapy, including drug recommendations and dose regimens. The structure of the guidelines makes it easy to assess, interpret and distil the relevant evidence for making decisions regarding patient care.

The guidelines are developed by a group of experts comprising medical specialists as well as general practitioners, pharmacists, nurses and librarians. The guidelines are frequently updated to provide the most recent information and are designed for use in Australia.

The new upgraded version of eTG complete features a dynamic and user friendly searchable interface. Search by keyword or browse by the index or contents list.
