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.
