The UpToDate International Grant Subscription Program

UpToDate® is an evidence-based, physician-authored clinical decision support resource used by clinicians to make point-of-care decisions and by medical educators.

UpToDate synthesizes the most recent medical information into evidence-based recommendations that are proven to improve patient care and quality. More than 700,000 clinicians in 158 countries and almost 90% of academic medical centers in the United States use UpToDate.

UpToDate has partnered with GHDonline to provide one-year complimentary subscriptions to qualifying GHDonline members who deliver medical care or related services, including medical education, to poor or underserved populations outside the United States of America.

In addition to continuing to learn from nursing colleagues, GHDonline is a very good resource on topics that are not necessarily my area of expertise. It has become a "go to" place to quickly get an overview of topics from a diverse group of providers.
