Design changes coming to DML website

November 25, 2019

On December 10th, the DML website will transition to a new platform, resulting in an updated look and feel. We expect little to no interruption of features during the transition. After transition, all of the services and resources that you have come to depend on from DML will remain accessible. We hope you enjoy the new look and find its design more responsive on all screen sizes!

For questions or concerns, please contact our Reference & Digital Information Services Coordinator, Angela Barr at ab3538@georgetown.edu

5MinuteConsult is moving…

November 19, 2019

5MinuteConsult, a point of care decision support tool will be moving from UCentral to the Wolters Kluwer platform in 2020.  With the move, there will be additional content as well as organizational and navigational differences.

Highlights of the new platform include:

  • Algorithms & charts providing clickable links to diseases & conditions, lab tests, or drugs.
  • Printable patient handouts in either Spanish or English.
  • Robust A-Z drug entries focusing on the action and pharmacokinetics of the drug rather than purely on the disease it treats. Drugs can be searched either by name or therapeutic classification.
  • PT exercises along with videos and PDF handouts.
  • Disease and condition content in English and Spanish including ICD Codes and clinical pearls.
  • CE/CME credit available for materials viewed on the site

5MinuteConsult can be searched across all of the categories or by simply selecting one of the categories such diseases and conditions, procedures, algorithms & charts, drugs, PT exercises, lab tests, and patient handouts. 5MinuteConsult is provided as a stand-alone app and a website.

After January 1 2020, the UCentral version of this resource will not be available.

Get started now with the new platform:
