Finding Drug Information



The preceding sections of this guide introduced you to the characteristics of drug information resources and some specific resources you could use. The flowchart suggests a typical path you might follow to find information on a topic and the charts indicate key information provided by selected resources.

This tutorial focused on web-based resources available at the University of Washington. Additional resources may be available in other formats (e.g. in print or for mobile devices) or at other locations. As you enter practice, you will create your own toolkit of useful resources.
