|dc.description.abstract||Despite the existence of several effective drugs for chronic tophaceous gout, management is often neither rational nor effective. Wendy Lipworth and colleagues examine the possible reasons
An evidence based or “rational” approach to prescribing is thought to maximise the benefit and minimise the harm from prescription drugs. Unfortunately, prescribing often does not meet this ideal despite clinicians’ best intentions. We use treatment of chronic tophaceous gout to show how apparently irrational prescribing arises from several interacting “failures” in both clinical practice and drug development.||en_AU|
