50 Resources for Healthcare: 12. Dynamed: an evidence-based clinical reference tool

If you work for the University Hospital of North Staffordshire you can get access to Dynamed via your NHS Athens username and password. See our Healthcare Resources page for a link.

Dynamed is similar to Up-to-Date which some of you may have used at other NHS organisations. Using Dynamed you can get the latest reviewed, evidence-based, clinical summaries for a wide range of conditions and diseases. Use the simple search facility or browse through the comprehensive A-Z list to find the information you need. 

You can find information about:

  • causes and risk factors 
  • complications
  • diagnosis
  • treatment
  • prognosis
  • prevention and screening
  • guidelines, reviews and other resources
  • links to patient information
  • references

Here is a video to introduce you to the main features.

You can find more help in the online guides section of our website.
Mobile versions are also available. Check our guides sections for links to the videos to show you how.
