Library News

 UpToDate Advanced Now Available

UpToDate now includes two new features (purchased by Barwon Health Library). Pathways are flow charts that prompt you to consider a patient’s symptoms and health history to arrive at an appropriate clinical decision. Test it out by going to UpToDate (in the Point of Care Tools section to the right and searching for diabetes and then clicking on the third result. Lab Interpretation helps you better understand unusual or challenging tests results. It displays a number of conditions or circumstances that may have led to a certain result and, similarly to Pathways, provides guidance on immediate action, additional testing etc. For example, search for hypoglycemia and again click on the third result. A short video is available on UpToDate Advanced

   Rehabilitation Reference Center is an evidence-based clinical reference tool for use by physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists and more. It has almost 800 reviews on rehabilitation topics, 150 research instruments, 10,000 exercise images and 3000 patient handouts.
