ClinicalKey – Updated Interface!

ClinicalKeyClinicalKey is now available via an updated interface.  The new interface is designed to connect users to the information needed to answer a question more quickly while continuing to provide access to ClinicalKey’s repository of full-text books, journal articles, FirstConsult point-of-care tool, clinical guidelines, drug information, and patient education materials.  ClinicalKey’s updated interface includes:

  • Topic page – 1,400 topic pages quickly connect users to point of care content. For example, the topic page on Renal Cell Carcinoma presents relevant content from Ferri’s Clinical Advisor 2015, Conn’s Current Therapy, Goldman’s Cecil Medicine 2014, and First Consult.  Along with the selected content available in the topic review, users can opt to show all results or access specialty views, related patient education, latest journal articles, or related practice guidelines.
  • Browse feature – browse a particular content type (e.g. journals, books, drug monographs, practice guidelines, etc.). You can find the Browse feature by clicking on ‘More’ in the upper left  area of ClinicalKey.
  • Personal account – Sign up for a free personal ClinicalKey account as part of Himmelfarb Library’s subscription to take advantage of even more special features including access to search history, PDF copies of book chapters, presentation maker, and saved items.

ClinicalKey’s updated interface still provides access to a wide collection of full-text materials including 1,000+ books, 600+ journals, 17,000+ medical and surgical videos, 300+ ProceduresConsult videos and articles, and more than two million images.  ClinicalKey also provides a gateway to the FirstConsult point-of-care library as well as drug information, practice guidelines, and patient education materials.  If you have any questions regarding ClinicalKey or online access, please contact Laura Abate at leabate@gwu.edu.
