Welcome

You have reached the website for The Tool Book, a handbook of drug dosing and usage guidelines for clinicians at Barnes-Jewish Hospital (BJH), Washington University Medical Center in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. This site is co-managed by the Department of Pharmacy at BJH and the Division of Infectious Diseases, Washington University School of Medicine.

In its thirteenth but first, fully electronic edition, the Tool Book's primary purpose is to provide drug information and clarify drug policies specific to BJH. Our intended audience is BJH attendings, housestaff, fellows, pharmacists, 3rd and 4th year medical students, 6th year PharmD students and selected nursing groups. Online access to the 2015 Tool Book begins Monday, June 8, 2015.

New Mobile Device App and Website for 2015-2016

Prior to the thirteenth edition, the BJH Pharmacy distributed a limited number of printed Tool Books throughout the medical center.

This academic year, we are excited to be working with the software engineers and designers at Dorsata, to create a website as well as a mobile app optimized for viewing the Tool Book on an iPad or iPhone. The Dorsata platform will also allow us to move from being able to provide one, annual, printed update, to pushing out at least quarterly, electronic updates that will seamlessly appear on the web or in your mobile app.
