  Point of Care Tools

These resources are meant as "point of care" resources. This means they give quick information and overviews for the most part. If you click on the little blue circle to the right of the resource, you will see a description.

  • DynaMed  
  • VisualDx  
  • MedlinePlus
  • UptoDate  
  • ACP Smart Medicine  Icon
    ACP Smart Medicine is a decision-support tool designed for point-of care use and take the place of ACP Pier. Smart Medicine is a collection of modules divided into five topic types: disease, screening and prevention, complementary and alternative medicine, ethical and legal issues, and procedures.

  Journal Article Databases

  • PubMed
    Broad Biomedical Subject Coverage
    Nursing and Allied Health Database - Good for Clinical & Psychosocial Questions
  • PsycINFO
    Psychology Database - Good for Psychosocial Questions
    Business Database - Good for Insurance & Health Administration Questions
  • Google Scholar
    Ok for interdisciplinary topics, but keep in mind that there are limitations with relevancy ranking and coverage. There's also the issue with personalization of Google.
