In July, Lister Hill purchased Rehabilitation Reference Center, an evidence-based clinical reference tool for use by rehabilitation clinicians at the point-of-care.
Rehabilitation Reference Center features the standard basic and advanced searches of most databases, but also contains a browsable glossary of Diseases and Conditions and another glossary for Drug Information. Each Disease & Condition entry provides a variety of useful information including synonyms, ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes, signs and symptoms, and information on examination and risk factors. The Practice Resources tab also features research instruments, clinical reviews, and practice guidelines.
A useful feature to improve patient understanding is the Patient Education section, which contains an extensive list of topics, each with a brief summation of the issue, images, risk factors, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. Patient Education information is available in both English and Spanish. Another interesting tool are the Exercise Images and explanations which can be printed and sent home with patients with individualized instructions about how to carry out the exercise.
Because Rehabilitation Resource Center is a product that is licensed by Lister Hill Library at UAB you must access the resource through the library’s databases page. For help using the Rehabilitation Resource Center please contact the Lister Hill Reference Department or Lister Hill Library and University Hospital.
