MONTVALE, N.J., Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Dowden Health Media, publisher of highly regarded medical journals, has just launched The Journal of Family Practice Special Edition: Current Clinical Practice and its companion, Current Clinical Practice.

Under the leadership of Editor-in-chief Bernard M. Rosof, MD, Chair of the American Medical Association's Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement, Current Clinical Practice is poised to become a pivotal voice in the dialogue surrounding contemporary medicine.
