University of Washinton's Pediatric Evidence Based Medicine website is quite good, and has a focus on clinically important, common pediatric topics. Well worth a visit.
Clinical Infectious Diseases has information about the lingering E-mail Hoax Linking Bananas and Necrotizing Fasciitis.
Yahoo: NY Mayor Giuliani Has Prostate Cancer. More questions than usual today about this from patients.
Some good PSA links so that you can sleep tonight:
Ebando: Screening for prostate cancer.
Group Health Cooperative Patient Handouts (my favorite link for patients) Prostate cancer screening – Group Health Cooperative
Saskatchewan PSA Guidelines (1995).
The POEMs review of the controversial Quebec study: Screening for prostate cancer.
More from Bandolier: Evidence-based screening [Dec 1995; 22-4]
JAMA Migraine Information Center is one of several JAMA information centers that provides good overviews of several common clinical problems. These are valuable resources, and the presence of a statement about the objectivity of the editorial board is reassuring. I also like the AMA's statement about advertising in publications: "No product-specific advertising will be permitted in a multimedia product where editorial content is considered to be of direct marketing interest to the financial sponsor." This sort of statement is notably absent from Medscape and webMD.
ePocrates, Inc. has the best durg information database I've ever seen avaailable for the palmpilot. I can't figure out why they are giving it away for free. No ads, no hype in the application. A+ software .. very well done stuff.
