PHCY 6250: Drug Literature Evaluation: Tertiary Point of Care Tools

Use this guide to explore drug and pharmacy information from the library print and electronic collections and reliable databases and information from the web.

What are Point of Care Sources?

Point of Care refers to a type of electronic database that is available via computer, ipad or smartphone for quick reference. These are tertiary sources. Some of the sources use evidence based methodology to provide "filtered" information, meaning an expert in the field has carefully evaluated the research and provided the current best practice based on that research.

Point of Care Resources

Two additional point of care tools that are purchased by some health care institutions are Clinical Pharmacology and DynaMed. Both are high quality resources that are evidence based and current.
