New Medical Database - DynaMed Plus

Studying medicine? JCU has recently subscribed to DynaMed Plus, a great resource for all medicine students!

DynaMed Plus is a clinical reference tool providing fast, easy access to the latest evidence-based information in medicine. Updated several times a day as new evidence becomes available, DynaMed was developed by a community of clinicians to supply healthcare professionals and students with the information they need to make the best-informed decisions at the point of care.

Topics covered within DynaMed Plus include specialty content in allergy; cardiology; critical care; dermatology; ear, nose and throat (ENT); emergency medicine; endocrinology; gastroenterology; gynaecology; hematology; infectious diseases; nephrology; neurology; obstetrics; oncology; orthopedics and sports medicine; paediatrics; primary care; psychiatry; pulmonary medicine; rheumatology; surgery; and vascular medicine.

Users can also access concise drug reference information including dosages, therapeutic use, cautions, comparative efficacy, approved and off-label indications, pharmacokinetics, clinical applications, and interactions of medications (including drug-drug, drug-food, drug-ethanol, drug-tobacco, and drug-laboratory).

Want access to medical information anytime, anywhere? DynaMed Plus is also available as a mobile app!

To access the DynaMed app, it is best to click on the Get the DynaMed Plus Mobile App link on the DynaMed home page so that you can use the app both on and off campus. Simply enter your email address and you will receive an email with an authentication key which you can then use to set up DynaMed on your mobile device.
