What's new on Clinical Key - new clinical overviews and books added

Clinical Overviews

Clinical Overviews are a quick and easy way to find evidence-based answers to your clinical questions.

Whenever you do a search in Clinical Key if there is a topic overview it will appear as the first result and also in a box on the right of the page.

Clinical Overviews are not book or journal content; they are concise, easily scannable summaries which include evidence-based information, current guidelines, and the latest advances on medical conditions. Clinical Overviews are tailored for clinicians.

The following topics have been added in  September:
  • Alopecia
  • Ehlers-Danlos syndromes
  • Interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Renal cell carcinoma
  • Shoulder dystocia


Elsevier have also added lots of new electronic books to Clinical Key this month, including:

Clinical Key is a fantastic, easy to use resource that contains huge amounts of full text content including:
  • 1,400 topic pages
  • Over 600 electronic journals

  • 850 First Consult monographs
  • 17,000 + medical / surgical videos
  • 300 + Procedures Consult videos
  • 15,000 patient education handouts
  • 2.2 million images
  • You can find a full content list here
There is also a free app allowing you to access Clinical Key on the go.
