The University of Otago Dunedin Campus has subscribed to the point-of-care tool UpToDate since 2011.
In the first three years of our subscription we saw a significant increase in use, but 2014 saw a very modest decrease in overall use. Have we plateaued?
Until 2015, off-campus access to this clinical resource has been restricted to medical students. With the implementation of the ‘anywhere, any time, any device’ student desktop, UpToDate is now available to all students (though not staff) of the University from wherever you can access a browser on the new desktop! It’s available through the Medicine subject guide, the EBM subject guide or the A-Z list of databases from the Library’s web pages.
