New Resources to Keep Current in Healthcare

Healthcare providers – we have a couple new resources to help you keep up to date.

Medical Letter [Library VPN required from off-site or other UCDH access option]

The Medical Letter On Drugs and Therapeutics is a biweekly publication that provides:
  • Evidence-based, peer-reviewed evaluations of new FDA-approved drugs with conclusions reached by a consensus of experts
  • New information on previously approved drugs including pivotal clinical trials, new indications, and safety warnings
  • Consensus recommendations for the preferred and alternative treatments for common disorders
  • Comparative reviews of drugs for a given indication with particular attention to clinical efficacy, adverse effects, drug interactions, and cost
