UpToDate is an evidence-based, peer-reviewed information resource to answer clinical questions. Remote access is not available – use it at a UB library or on-campus.
Although intended primarily for physicians, advanced practice nurses and clinical specialists will find it useful.
Experts provide topic reviews that include a synthesis if the literature, the latest evidence, and specific recommendations for patient care. It contains full-text summaries with high quality references.
Five additional separate sections introduce the following resources:
Nursing Reference Center
EBM Reviews - Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials
PubMed Clinical Queries
National Guideline Clearinghouse
