Did you know that DynaMed
has recorded nine "Practice-Changing Updates"
already this morning? Yesterday, DynaMed posted 21 updates
Never before has the saying "If you stand still you will be left behind"
been more true than in the world of 21st century medicine.How can you keep pace and truely provide current, best, evidence-based practice?
One method is to take advantage of DynaMed's "Recent Updates"
page (notice the second link on left in the top navigation bar), which provides a view of the most recent articles added to DynaMed summaries.
◦DynaMed is updated daily through a 7-step evidence-based method for systematic literature surveillance so clinicians can find the best available evidence at the point of care. DynaMed topics provide synthesized summaries integrating new evidence with existing evidence to directly answer most clinical questions in a single source. Check out DynaMed's new interface while you are there.
If you need more help accessing DynaMed come and see us in the Library for your EBSCO login and/or your mobile access code.

Check out this great new tool for quickly evaluating the quality of health information presented on a website, booklet, handout, etc. Put on your critical thinking caps and let the tool guide you painlessly through the process.
Health professionals and families alike, can use the tool to judge the quality of currently available educational materials and to assist in the creation of new quality educational materials. The aim of the lead developer of this toolbox, the Genetic Alliance
, was to provide assistance in determining information quality and completeness involving genetic conditions. Nonetheless, the principles are valid for all health and medicine topics.
