GOUT: An aeromedical clinical practice guideline
Through the completion of this capstone project, I am demonstrating the significance of gout in the United States of America, and in particular in the arena of aerospace medicine today. I have created a current clinical practice guideline that allows for the efficient delivery of excellent acute and long term care to flight personnel afflicted with gout. This guideline addresses diagnosis, management, follow up and prevention strategies for dealing with gout. Standardization of management of this disease throughout the aerospace community will have multiple benefits for flight personnel with gout, aeromedical practitioners and the general public.
