Healthguides version of the Map of Medicine® - Terms

Please read these Terms carefully. This version of the "Map of Medicine" is not intended for practical application and has been developed in accordance with UK standard practices for your information only.

1. Agreement

1.1 This freely accessible version of the Map of Medicine is a generalised assessment version of a select number of pathways taken from the online clinical knowledge resource that has been provided to allow you to see how it operates (the 'Map'). The Map is produced and made available by Map of Medicine Ltd whose registered office is at Fox Court, 14 Gray's Inn Road, London, WC1X 8HN (Company Number: 6454115). By accessing the Map you ("you") agree to these Terms.

1.3 You are hereby granted a non-transferable, non-exclusive licence to view the Map for your personal assessment and non-commercial purposes until your access is terminated by us.

2. Disclaimer

2.1 This version of the Map is not intended for practical use and is for assessment purposes only so that healthcare professionals and their patients are aware of the product and how it is likely to work in practice. The fully developed version of the Map is intended to be used only by qualified healthcare professionals to assist them in their diagnosis and management of patients. Some portion of the Content may have been amended or modified to match clinical practice in a local or regional setting by local or regional health authorities. Map of Medicine has not reviewed or approved any such amendments or modifications and (to the extent permissible under applicable law) disclaims any liability for any such Content.

2.2 The Map has been developed by qualified healthcare professionals in the UK in accordance with UK standard practices and is expressly not intended to be applicable to any other jurisdiction which may have different laws, regulations and medical practices.

2.3 The ultimate responsibility for the use of the Content (as defined below), dosage of drugs and correct following of instructions as well as the interpretation of the published material as set out in the Map and the Content lies solely with healthcare professionals.

2.4 In circumstances where you suffer loss or damage arising out of or in connection with the use of the Map and/or the Content, Map of Medicine Ltd and its employees, editors and publishers accept no liability for this loss or damage whether due to inaccuracy, error, omission or any other cause and whether on the part of Map of Medicine Ltd or its servants, agents or any other person, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.

2.5 You should be aware that professionals in the field may have different opinions. Because of this fact and also because of regular advances in medical research, we strongly recommend that specialised treatments and drugs are independently verified, including manufacturers' guidance.

2.6 Also, the categories do not indicate whether a particular treatment is generally appropriate or whether it is suitable for a particular individual and an appropriate assessment must be given in relation to each patient based on their history and symptoms. Ultimately it is your doctor's or other healthcare provider's responsibility to make their own professional judgement, so as to appropriately advise and treat.
