For 2017, the Dalhousie Libraries has upgraded from DynaMed to the new, enhanced DynaMed Plus. DynaMed Plus is available on and off-campus now.
DynaMed Plus tools present critically appraised evidence from more than 500 medical journals in a quick, easy-to-read format designed for use at the point of care. This includes: synthesized GRADE recommendations, key points on background, evaluation, and management of a condition, and concise, evidence-based treatment suggestions.
What’s new in DynaMed Plus?
New partners who help develop and provide current, up-to-the-minute information. These partners include, among others, the American Medical Association, the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, McMaster University, and The American College of Physicians, which maintains the internal medicine topics and provides thousands of ACP tables, images and graphics.
New features (not available in the older product), including:
- Drug and lab reference content provided by Micromedex®
- Internal medicine topics developed and maintained jointly by DynaMed Plus and American College of Physicians (ACP) clinical leadership
- Concept-based searching and easy access to topic sections
- In-depth specialty content
- Overviews and recommendations
- Responsive design
New and upgraded mobile app. Instructions on installing the DynaMed Plus app can be found here.
