UpToDate Patient Information

If you’re looking for reliable health related information on the web, we feature Up-to Date Patient Information, a website devoted to quality health education and information topics.

UpToDate offers two levels of content for patients:

  • The Basics are short overviews. They are written in accordance with plain language principles and answer the four or five most important questions a person might have about a medical problem.
  • Beyond the Basics are longer, more detailed reviews. They are best for readers who want detailed information and are comfortable with some medical terminology.
