The new EBSCO platform will host a new, 2019 edition.

Derm Expert Image View will be listed under the “Image Library” section.

Evidex Training (online)
Sponsored by Dahlgren Memorial Library

Summary:
Hospital staff need quick access to the latest adverse event data and evidence-based research to ensure drug prescribing decisions reflect the most current evidence. Poring through literature when answering a specific question relating to a patient safety issue isn’t feasible. Evidex provides the latest clinical data to facilitate real-time evidence-based decisions which help keep patients safe. This webinar will cover how to search Evidex by drug product, drug/adverse event reactions, and strategies for comparison of the safety of drugs within a class, indication, or mechanism of action.

When: February 21st at Noon ET

MedStar Georgetown University Hospital Access: Update

November 16, 2016

Update: The issue has been resolved – MGUH users can access DML resources as usual.

Users connecting via the MedStar Georgetown University Hospital network have recently reported access problems connecting to DML resources. As a work around, we recommend connecting to the resources from a network other than the MGUH network (such as a data plan on a mobile device or home network). Computers located in DML are also available for research 24 hours day/7days a week. We apologize for the inconvenience and are working with the information systems departments at Georgetown and MedStar to identify a solution to this issue.

If you see an error message when connecting to DML resources please contact dmlresources@georgetown.edu.

To request DML research or reference assistance please contact dmlreference@georgetown.edu.
