Important! When printing this trifold pocket guide, print on 8.5x11 paper but print the document at actual size. Do not “shrink to fit” within printer margins as your pamphlet will not fold correctly. Copying of the one sided document to a two-sided single sheet is strongly recommended prior to use. If printing directly as a double-sided document, open "Pocket Guide A" and select “short side binding” or "right bind" so that front and back are appropriately oriented. If that does not work, open "Pocket Guide B" and select "left bind."
Personalize and retain this guide in your white coat for easy reference. Students and faculty alike may find the guided history and assessment/plan useful when discussing case presentations for at-risk patients.
