The AAFP recently recognized the high quality and value of UpToDate, a clinical information resource that provides physicians with expert answers to questions that arise at the point of care. AAFP members can register for a free 14-day trial by going online to www.aafp.org/ uptodate.xml. UpToDate is a comprehensive synthesis of the latest scientific evidence and expert opinion that is organized to answer specific clinical questions. The staff of approximately 3,000 physicians provides practical guidance on diagnosing and treating individual cases. A completely updated version of UpToDate is released every four months and is available on the Web, or in CD-ROM and Pocket PC handheld formats. UpToDate allows subscribers to: access information regarding best current practices on any aspect of family medicine; recognize the clinical manifestations of a wide variety of diseases and disorders and review current options for diagnosis, management, and therapy; and evaluate and treat system-specific manifestations of systemic disorders.
