Access to UpToDateAll our staff have access to UpToDate for a trial period.
This has now been extended from the UKZN network to the DOH intranet. Please encourage people to use it as much as possible – particularly our registrars.
The trial period has been extended because of the disruptions accompanying the strike. Once the need has been assessed, a decision on signing up (it’s expensive) can be made.
It is available from:
UKZN. Access via http://library.ukzn.ac.za/Trials778.aspx
All our HOSPITALS using the DOH intranet. Access it thus: Click the E-library link on the homepage and then on the General Resources button.
Note that access is controlled by IP number, so you will not be able to access it from outside Medical School or the Hospitals.
Please report your experience with it to Prof Hift.
