What's included in UpToDate

Up to Date is a clinical resource specifically created to assist with diagnosis and treatment.

It is often referred to as a Point of Care tool as it provides synthesized topic reviews that cover all of the major aspects of a particular condition, including symptoms, tests and diagnosis, and treatment.

What's Included

  • 13 Topics of Speciality  with subtopics underneath cover all of the major aspects of a particular condition, including symptoms, tests and diagnosis, and treatment options
  •  Treatment recommendations are graded to quickly assess their strength and quality of the evidence
  • 165 clinical calculators are available
  •  References link directly to PubMed
  • UptoDate is recognised by most Australian medical colleges to redeem CPD activities.

The What's New tab highlights important updates to topics and the Practice Changing Updates specific new recommendations and/or updates that we anticipate may change usual clinical practice.

Lexicomp - Drug Information

As part of Cabrini's subscription to UTD partial access to Lexicomp is available.

What is Lexicomp?

Lexicomp is a  A Drug-Drug, Drug-Herb, and Herb-Herb analysis tool.

How do I access Lexicomp?

Click on the Drug Interactions tab on the navigation bar in UpToDate.

Users can type two or more drugs to get an interaction rating, to alert if there is a risk to the patient by taking a combination of certain drugs and medications.

As an example a patient who has Crohn's disease  is going to be treated with the drug infliximab.

The patient has told you that they are taking the complimentary drug St john's Wort for depression.

Type in the first drug in Lexicomp St  John's Wort, Type in the second drug infliximab

Click on the Analyze button and it brings back the rating of  No interactions of Risk Level A or greater identified.

However please note Lexicomp does not address chemical compatibility related to I.V. drug preparation or administration.

Please refer to the AIDH or MIMS for this type of information.
