How does DynaMed keep up with the latest updates in medicine? How frequently are updates made?

DynaMed is updated every day - multiple times a day. Changes are made when the evidence suggests, and all updates are clearly marked, noting what has changed and why – with references to the evidence.

Does the tool provide expert opinion to add context to medical knowledge and research findings?

DynaMed combines the best available evidence with clinical expertise. DynaMed’s rigorous, seven-step evidence-based methodology, robust systematic literature surveillance with daily updates, and clinical expertise (that both complements and clarifies the evidence) is intended to provide clinicians with the utmost confidence in information they use to diagnose and manage patients.  DynaMed has a large group of experts in their field who author our topics and make recommendations.  Their names, affiliations, and any conflict of interest statements are clearly represented throughout. Clinicians’ Practice Points provide guidance and opinion from expert physician editors on what is perceived to be good clinical practice in the absence of robust evidence. DynaMed Commentary provides information about the methodology or other significant technical aspects of the clinical studies that are critically appraised in the evidence summaries.
