Are you new to Duke and want to link your existing UpToDate account to Duke's institutional access? Here's what to do!
If access through your previous institution or personal subscription is still active:
You must let this lapse before you can link your account to Duke's institutional access. This will enable you to keep your existing username and password, as well as any accrued Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits. Once it has lapsed, access UpToDate via the Medical Center Library’s Website. Login with your existing username and password.

Library Resources Now Accessible in Maestro Care!

Do you access UpToDate through Maestro Care?
Users accessing UpToDate through the Maestro Care toolbar or through a patient's chart (problem list, MAR, orders, etc.) will have immediate access to other evidence-based resources, including ACP Journal Club, the Cochrane Library, ClinicalKey, ClinicalKey for Nursing, Lexicomp, MedlinePlus (for patients), and PubMed.
When you click on the UpToDate button, searches should still work the same way and users’ Maestro Care IDs will still be sent to UpToDate for automatic log-in to receive CME credit for searches.

Practice Changing Recommendations
Posted On: Friday, January 24, 2014 - 15:08 by Brandi Tuttle
Did you know that UpToDate has a specific section called Practice Changing UpDates designed to alert readers of changes that the editorial staff think may impact clinical practice? You can easily see this list of Practice Changing UpDates by searching for "practice changing updates" or by clicking on the "What's New" link on the green tool bar and then clicking on the "Practice Changing UpDates" topic.
How fast do these recommendations happen? UpToDate lists one example where an UpDate occured five days after the release of the results of a randomized drug trial. In general, the timing is based on the release of evidence, UpToDate's peer review process, and the clinical significance.
By the way, the "What's New" section lists selected important updates and lists them...MORE
