You can also make an appointment to see one of us, your subject specialist librarians, if you'd like some support with your research. This guide is always a work in progress, so we welcome suggestions for additional content.
Please note that this was originally two separate guides (Medicine and Medicine: EBM for General Practice) which have been merged as a single source for biomedical information at the University of Otago.
How did you find me?
We are gathering some data to help us understand how the Library Subject guides are used by students and what you think of them. Please help us out by completing a quick online survey.
The survey requires no personal details.
Thanks very much for your help!
The Library is delighted to offer DynaMed Plus as a clinical decision support tool for 2018. Independent studies have ranked DynaMed higher than other clinical reference services in its category. Study findings have showed that DynaMed is the most current evidence-based point-of-care reference database.
DynaMed Plus topics include concise summaries and detailed recommendations based on the most current evidence. Clinicians and students can view the Overviews & Recommendations section of DynaMed Plus topics to get a quick summary of the topic and recommended actions based on the most current evidence. Clinicians can easily see the levels of evidence and guidelines behind each recommendation.
