Does anyone have experience using Up-to-date for Pharmacy information where you work? Is it a look-up for pharmacy information, or integrated into your system? Does nursing have access to it where you work (and do nurses use it?) Users' input most welcome. Thank you!!

I use UpToDate all of the time! Wonderful resource for anything medical (diagnoses, medications, patient care management, etc) and as the title suggests, provides the most "up to date" (evidenced based) information.

If you work at a facility that has a subscription to UpToDate you may be able to utilize it as a nurse. A MD resident told me about it and suggested that I talk to the librarians in our hospital - which I did - and they gave me an access code so that I may log into it at work, at home on my personal computer, an through an app on my phone. Highly recommend checking it out. Easy to navigate through, no ads, and is free.

You also get CEUs each time you click or open an article. Extra-awesome!
