Lexi-Comp is a comprehensive drug information tool for use at the point of care. It contains clinical modules with information about drug interactions, identification, calculations, toxicology, and patient education. The indexes provide current generic and brand names for drugs used in the United States, Canada, and internationally for adult, paediatric, and geriatric populations. Natural product, infectious disease, and lab test information is also included.
AHS-affliated individuals, such as University of Alberta Medical Residents, are suggested to download Lexicomp through the Alberta Health & Service Knowledge Resource Service as their needs focus on patient care. This is contrasted to University students whose use centers on course study.
Clinical Key integrates much of Elsevier's medical and surgical content into one online resource, giving physicians access to large numbers of books, journals, videos and images. NOTE: You must be signed on to a free ClinicalKey account in order to download PDF versions of articles and book chapters.
ClinicalKey can be accessed on Apple and Android mobile devices. To access the full content of ClinicalKey you will need to register for a free ClinicalKey account. Information on this can be found here.
