Resources for Clinicians

The Bio-Medical Library subscribes to many electronic resources that may be of interest to clinicians. Granted, most of these focus on clinical medicine but there are areas of coverage for dental topics.

One of these resources is called InfoPoems.

InfoPoems is a product that is designed to answer clinical medicine topics at the point of care. An InfoPOEM is a synopsis and evaluation of a research study applicable to clinical practice. Editors review more than 1,200 studies monthly, presenting only the best as InfoPOEMs. Use InfoRetriever to simultaneously search the InfoPOEMS database and 6 other evidence-based practice resources, including 5-Minute Clinical Consult, Cochrane, Practice Guidelines, and more. You can also download InfoRetriever to your PDA (although at this time, there are problems with the PDA download process).

Another resource with dental topics is called EviDents/. EviDents is web site that does real-time PubMed searches with a focus on the best practices in dentistry.

The Bio-Medical Library has a web site with links to other subscribed resources for clinicians. Visit our clinicians page at: http://www.biomed.lib.umn.edu/help/guides/clinicians
