Clinical Tools and Resources: Clinical Tools @ UHN

Clinical Tools provide synthesized evidence allowing health care staff to make evidence-based decisions easier and faster.

What are Clinical Tools?

Clinical tools and resources aim to synthesize all available evidence for major clinical topics for health care workers when providing patient care. By summarizing medical knowledge, it is easier to apply the best evidence within the context of providing patient care. Often, these tools can include the following:

  • Synthesized current evidence for diagnosis, tests and interventions (e.g. treatments, drugs)
  • Designed for rapid consultation at the point of patient care
  • Evidence-based and frequently updated, with links to relevant literature
  • Drug information, ICD coding, information for patients, PDA application, and provision for links to electronic health records
