FNU provides clinical students with clinical reference mobile apps to use during clinicals. We feel that access to information at the point of care will enhance your clinical experience. The apps provided are discussed below and on the following pages. You will need to read all of this information carefully. You will use these apps at Clinical Bound, so you need to download and install them on your mobile device prior to arriving in Hyden.
Lexicomp is a drug and clinical reference tool. FNU provides clinical students with the Lexi-COMPLETE package which includes over 20 databases with comprehensive drug coverage and other clinical resources, such as Lexi- Drugs, 5 Minute Clinical Consult, and Stedman's Medical Dictionary. The school supplies a one-year subscription, normally priced at $285. We also have access to Lexicomp Online, a web-based product with the same drug information. That resource can be found on the Library homepage. You will receive an email message from Billie Anne Gebb, Director of Library Services, approximately 3-4 weeks prior to the start of Clinical Bound, with the subject line "Important Information for Clinical: Lexicomp software for your mobile device." This message will contain an access code and link to instructions for obtaining the Lexi-COMPLETE software (your subscription period begins when you activate your code). You cannot acquire the software without the access code. The access codes are unique to each individual - they cannot be shared. The code can be used to download the app to two devices.
Download instructions for Lexicomp are available at http://www.lexi.com/codes/?universal=Use_Code_Provided_By_Organization and are summarized below. For device compatibility information, see http://webstore.lexi.com/popups/compatibility/popup.html.
You must first create an account with Lexicomp. It may be easier to do this from a computer.
DynaMed is a clinical reference tool that provides evidence-based summaries for over 3,000 topics. DynaMed can be accessed from the Library homepage, but there is also a mobile version for use on a mobile device. Access and installation instructions are below. Your subscription will expire six months after you activate it for the first time. If you need access beyond six months, you can request another activation code.
Note: It may be easier to complete steps 1-3 from a computer.
