AFP Algorithms

This collection includes diagnostic and treatment algorithms that can aid clinical decision making. Use the filters to sort by discipline or topic. You can also search by keyword for articles containing algorithms. The collection includes algorithms published in AFP since 1998; clinical judgment should be used when referring to older algorithms, as the validity of the medical information included cannot be guaranteed.
