We use Micromedex (Drugdex) - it is an excellent database for in-depth info
on drugs.  It is used mostly by Pharmacy, but last year we networked it to
all the wards.  It is popular with the clinical staff so I'd recommend it.

Can anyone comment on their users' experience with Micromedex
products?  We are looking into obtaining a site license for DrugDex,
Drug REAX, the PDR, Identidex, and possible a few other products.
We haven't yet looked at this carefully, and I was wondering about
things like ease of use, and publicizing these tools to clinical
staff.  Is training useful, or are these products very straight-
forward?  Please send any responses to me or the list.  Thanks
very much.
