What is a clinical tool?
Clinical tools are information resources that allow physicians to access clinically-relevant information at the point of need. The library provides access to a number of such tools including syntheses, summaries, critically-appraised topics and articles, evidence-based practice resources, guidelines, differential diagnosis tools, and calculators. Clinical tools facilitate the medical decision-making process and save physicians time.
While most resources are available on the Chicago campus or at NMH, you will need to sign in to the library website to ensure access.
