Medical Reference – Good Deals (Electronic)

July 21, 2010

A quick FYI – two good medical reference deals that have been sent to me by colleagues:

1. Skyscape – 15% off Mobile Clinical Resources until July 31st

Skyscape medical software features gold standard medical and nursing references for iPhone, Blackberry, Palm, PDA, PPC, Symbian, Android devices.

July rotations have already begun and Skyscape wants to help. Save 15% on all the mobile clinical decision support you need – now through July 31st!

Whether you’re a 3rd or 4th year medical student, or starting an internship or residency program, Skyscape wants to help you with the decision support you need to treat your patients and be more confident in your clinical decisions. Choose from more than 600 mobile resources in 36 medical specialties.

Remember : many residency programs allow you to use book allowances toward Skyscape resources, so check with your program for even greater savings.

2. Cochrane Library – Free 6 month trial for Canadians

The Cochrane Library is a collection of six databases that contain different types of high-quality, independent evidence to inform healthcare decision-making, and a seventh database that provides information about groups in The Cochrane Collaboration. If you want a free 6 month trial subscription to the full Cochrane library go to the web-link above and fill out the online form.

The 2009 pilot access for all Canadians supported by the contributions of subscribers from hospital, academic, and government libraries, and regional and provincial health library networks and consortia across Canada; with the support of The Canadian Health Libraries Association, the Canadian Cochrane Network and Centre, and the Canadian Institute for Scientific and Technical Information has now expired.

While work continues to find a secure permanent national license, individual residents in Canada are being offered personal six month trial access for free. Simply complete the online form at http://www.blackwellpublishingsurvey.com/survey/149929/17d6/or email hmansell@wiley.com with your name and full postal address.
