Point of care resources are clinical decision support tools that allow quick retrieval of information on diagnosis and treatment for immediate action at the bedside. These resources synthesize and evaluate the most relevant evidence from the primary clinical literature, and include detailed summaries of a wide range of conditions and interventions, rationale for patient care decisions, and links to original studies.
