The best way to find Ebooks is with the Medical Ebooks Search. There are subject sets for public health and for epidemiology, so start by picking the one most likely to contain your topic, or search by typing a keyword in the box.
You can also search in the library catalog, click the "Library Search" tab, enter your keyword, and use the filters to narrow the results to certain campus locations, or to electronic resources.
Find the Ejournals by searching for a word in the name of the journal (not by the title of an article). Consider related terms that might be useful. To narrow your retrieval, choose more specific terms; to broaden your search, think of umbrella terms that are on topic but less specific. Remember, you are only searching the name of the journal, not for individual articles (see PubMed for that).
The ePSS is an application designed to help primary care clinicians identify clinical preventive services that are appropriate for their patients. Use the tool to search and browse U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommendations on the web or on your PDA or mobile device.
AHRQ's Electronic Preventive Services Selector (ePSS) is a quick, hands-on tool designed to help primary care clinicians and health care teams identify, prioritize, and offer the screening, counseling, and preventive medication services that are appropriate for their patients. The ePSS is based on the current, evidence-based recommendations of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) and can be searched by specific patient characteristics, such as age, sex, and selected behavioral risk factors. Available both as a Web-based selector and as a downloadable PDA application, the ePSS brings information on clinical preventive services that clinicians need - recommendations, clinical considerations, and selected practice tools - to the point of care.
Some of the tools in the ePSS include a BMI calculator, a scoring system for osteoporosis, and topic specific information for patients from www.healthfinder.gov.
Some of the ways the ePSS is being used include:
