UpToDate, and Twitter

Laika’s MedLibLog posts an article summarizing a blog-and-twitter discussion of  UpToDate in How Evidence Based Is UpToDate really?

The post presents a variety of opinions, as well as taking a brief look, from an evidence-based point of view, at a study cited on UpToDate’s webpage relating improved patient outcomes to hospitals’ use or non-use of UpToDate. (Laika gives it a grade C: retrospective, observation based, half of the authors are from UpToDate.)

I found the use of Twitter almost as interesting as the topic of the post;  a resource that seems to be more “main-stream” every day. In my town, one can follow the weather and news reporters’ tweets as another stream of information.
