Barwon Health Library Service: Point of Care Tools

Evidence for Excellence

Point of Care Resources

Point-of-care tools are evidence-based clinical decision support resources that allow quick retrieval of information on diagnosis and treatment for immediate action at the point of patient care. These resources synthesise and evaluate relevant evidence from the clinical literature and provide detailed summaries on a wide range of conditions and interventions.
