Do you access UpToDate through Maestro Care?

UpToDate has changed its remote access authentication policy requiring Duke users to log into UpToDate from the Duke network from every 30 days to every 90 days. Hopefully this will help those working or studying away from Duke for short periods of time to easily retain access to this important resource.
Have you gotten an email from UpToDate Support lately with the subject line "Your remote access to UpToDate has lapsed"? If you downloaded the UpToDate mobile app and haven't used it or…MORE
