The New Year will bring us the new ClinicalKey experience!  MD Consult’s redesign into ClinicalKey was built for easier navigation on any device.  ClinicalKey finds relevant answers and related information as quickly as it is needed.  It provides access to trusted, evidence-based content from over 1,000 reference books, 600 leading journals, more than 17,000 medical and surgical videos--as well as clinical trials, patient education handouts, the Elsevier Clinics journals, images, drug monographs, practice guidelines, and fully-indexed MEDLINE citations.

Calder Library will offer training sessions on this product after the New Year.  In the meantime, those who want to get started using this resource can pick up a Quick Reference Card and flyers from the Circulation desk at the library.  At some point after the New Year, the books and journals will be available from the Library online catalog and from the e-Books and e-Journals A-Z lists on the Library’s website, as well as from the ClinicalKey database.

New ClinicalKey features include:

Topic Pages on more than 1,400 disease conditions will provide a comprehensive overview covering risk factors, clinical manifestations, treatments and more, for quick point-of-care decisions.

Mobile Optimization means that ClinicalKey adapts to users’ phone, tablet, or other mobile devices so they can continue to discover fast answers and deep evidence—anytime, anywhere.

Patient Education Customization provides users the ability to add special instructions and care provider contact information.

Presentation Maker eases the process of sharing, manipulating, and storing content for later use in multiple presentations.

Dr. Frances Collins, NIH Director, recently announced the launching of the Accelerating Medicines Partnership (AMP) which will “strive to identify better targets so we can develop better drugs at a faster pace.” Participants include the NIH, Foundation for the NIH, 10 biopharmaceutical firms (AbbVie, Biogen Idec, Bristol-Myers Squibb, GlaxoSmithKline, Johnson & Johnson, Lilly, Merck, Pfizer, Sanofi, Takeda) and several non-profit organizations and patient-advocacy groups (Alzheimer’s Association, American Diabetes Association, Lupus Foundation of America, Foundation for the NIH, Geoffrey Beene Foundation, PhRMA, Rheumatology Research Foundation, USAgainstAlzheimer’s).

The AMP will begin by investing $230 million in pilot projects in three disease areas:

Alzheimer’s disease
Type 2 Diabetes
Autoimmune Disorders (Lupus and Rheumatoid arthritis)

The cost will be shared 50% by NIH and private industry. The 3-5 year pilot projects will set the stage for broadening AMP to other diseases and conditions. This joint collaboration will take advantage of “recent advances in genomics, proteomics, imaging, and other technologies which have led to the discovery of more than a thousand risk factors for common diseases—biological changes that ought to hold promise as targets for drugs,” stated Dr. Collins in a press conference on February 4th, at Washington, DC.

New! Spanish Edition of the Desk Reference to the Diagnostic Criteria from DSM-5 PDF Print E-mail
New Resources Announcements
Written by Carmen Bou-Crick   
Monday, 17 February 2014 00:00

The Spanish edition of the Desk Reference to the Diagnostic Criteria from DSM-5™ (Guia de Consulta de los Criterios Diagnósticos del DSM-5™) is now available as a PDF at the Psychiatry Online DSM Library. This new publication may also be accessed by going directly to the DSM Library collection on PsychiatryOnline, and through the Calder Library Website eDatabases tab. DSM-5 is the latest edition (2013) of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, used by psychiatrists and psychologists to diagnose patients who suffer from mental illness.

The Spanish Edition of the Desk Reference should be used as a practical guide for Spanish-speakers in conjunction with the English version of DSM-5. Both publications contain the ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM Codes for each of the mental disorders. The Spanish Edition has two sections: Section 1 has basic concepts of the DSM-5 and instructions on how to use the manual and Section 2 has the list of all the diagnostic criteria with the codes.

Also in the DSM Library are the DSM-5 Handbook of Differential Diagnosis and DSM-5 Clinical Cases. The DSM-5 Handbook of Differential Diagnosis provides a six-step diagnostic framework, decision trees, and differential diagnosis tables (one for each of the most important DSM-5 disorders) which “should improve clinicians’ skills in formulating a comprehensive differential diagnosis by presenting the problem from a number of different perspectives.” The DSM-5 Clinical Cases book features 103 cases “chosen to demonstrate one or more DSM-5 diagnoses and each of the cases is followed by a short diagnostic discussion.” The cases were based on actual patients. According to the authors, “both books can be used by people outside the mental health field, although both books emphasize that seasoned clinical judgment is often required to differentiate the normal from the pathological in regard to the making of an overall diagnosis, the assessment of specific diagnostic criteria, and the recognition of important comorbidities.” - Quoted from PsychiatryOnline

NEW! UpToDate Graphics Search PDF Print E-mail
New Resources Announcements
Written by Carmen Bou-Crick   
Monday, 27 January 2014 00:00

UpToDate now offers the option of searching an extensive library of high-quality graphics, including more than 27,000 pictures, tables, illustrations, diagrams, graphs, algorithms and videos, without using a separate search engine.  After entering the search term(s)—it can be a disease, symptom, laboratory abnormality, procedure, or drug; click on the Graphics link to quickly and easily search the database for graphics related to that topic. For example, in a search for “anemia,” results include a series of algorithms for treatment of anemia, pictures of anemia-induced skin conditions, pictures of blood smears, radiographs and angiographs, multiples graphs comparing treatments, tables of risk factors, practice guidelines, and useful information that will enhance the clinician’s ability to diagnose and treat patients.  Graphics results are presented as thumbnails with titles (see below).  Click on any thumbnail to enlarge the image.  Once the image is enlarged, it can be sent by email, printed, or exported to MS PowerPoint (PPT), making this resource useful for enhancing instructional materials (when “Export” is selected the specific image is converted into a fully-referenced PPT slide).  Each graphic also provides references and links to related topics of interest (look for “Appears in Topics”).

To learn more about conducting a Graphics Search, sharing information with patients or colleagues, and exporting graphics to a presentation, watch a short video tutorial that can be found at:

Please do not hesitate to contact a Reference Librarian at Calder Library for assistance with UpToDate.  You may contact us by phone at 305-243-6648 or by email at
