COVID-19 Point-of-Care Tools for Patient Care

Evidence-based care resources are especially valuable during the uncertainty in the fight against COVID-19. 

Point-of-care tools provide evidence-based guidance in a variety of specialties for the management and treatment of COVID-19. Topics are presented in a bulleted, outlined format to be easily referenced from the bedside.  

The Health Sciences Library provides access to the point-of-care tools UpToDate (for students only), Lexicomp, and DynaMed

DynaMed: Provides a complete COVID-19 care topic, related topic summaries, and highlighted updates.

Lexicomp: Offers COVID-19 related drug monographs, drug interactions, contraindications, lab tests, and patient education sheets. 

UpToDate*: Find a comprehensive list of COVID-19 topic summaries on UpToDate’s homepage. You will also find Questions and Answers and UptoDate Pathways, which provides a decision tree titled Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19): Initial telephone triage of adult outpatients.

*Note: NYMC access to UpToDate is for students and select faculty only, however Wolters-Kluwer is making COVID-19-related topics available to all. 

Your use of these resources is eligible for CME credit. For more information, please contact a reference librarian.
