Physician's Health Sciences Library
The library has been upgraded to meet the challenge of establishing evidence based medicine for our patients while providing easier access to information for our care givers.
UpToDate, a best practices tool, has been in place at Lakeland since 2004 and is used extensively by our healthcare professionals. Recently Clin-eguide an evidence based medicine database has been added to provide the most accurate and current information to help our clinicians make the best patient care decisions. To access these sites you will need a username and password. If you already have your username and password click here.
