Keeping Pace with DynaMed

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.
‚ó¶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.
