NATURAL MEDICINES (formerly NaturalStandard)

Clinicians in the community and other areas of practice are approached by many patients for questions on complementary and alternative medicines (CAM). High utilization herbs and supplements are popular topics. Confusion exists amongst healthcare professionals on the role of natural products in integrative care. The Natural Medicines/Natural Standard Continuing Education programs are aimed at addressing the evidence of benefit or lack thereof and safety concerns surrounding the use of various CAM herbs & supplements. For a listing of Continuing Education courses visit: https://naturalmedicines.therapeuticresearch.com/continuing-education.aspx

For more information and to request account set up, contact the library or visit Monday-Friday between 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. For self-service request forms and resource links, visit our website at http://huntingtonhospital.libguides.com.

Resources for the Diagnosis, Treatment & Control of Measles

The CDC reports that as of January 1st, 2015, there have been 102 cases of measles reported. A majority of those were in California due to an amusement park outbreak in late December. The number of measles cases in 2014 rose to 644, the greatest number documented since its elimination in 2000. According to the CDC, a majority of the cases were unvaccinated individuals.

The library has a number of authoritative online resources (click for our mini-guide) to assist with the diagnosis, differential diagnosis, treatment and control of measles.

Off-site access to all of the resources is also available via Citrix/Cerner (physicians only) or contact the library to request username/password access for off-site.

Planning on Doing a Little Research Over the Holidays? Set-Up Off-site Access to Library Resources

The Library will be closed and library staff will be unavailable during the Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Years’ holidays but that doesn’t mean you can’t access the library and its resources. As always, the physical library will be accessible to clinical staff via their badges on a 24/7 basis. For anytime, anywhere access you can request usernames & passwords to many of the library’s resources, read on to find out how!

Physicians: If you are a Huntington Hospital affiliated physician you are able to access the library’s resources from your Citrix/Cerner or CONNECT log in. See our Physicians Off-Site Access page to learn how. If you would prefer to have username/password access to a resource, please submit a Request Off-Site Access form or contact the library directly during business hours.
