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.
