Should You Get Medical Books Via iBooks?

I’m anxious for publishers to start really listening to the medical community (especially those ones who do the bulk of the book buying). I would love (and I think my docs at least would use) handbooks (like Washington Manuals or Mass Gen Pocket Medicine) that can be easily accessed/downloaded onto mobile devices. It needs to be searchable so they can find what they need.

Apple’s top 80 apps for doctors, nurses, patients

Apple’s top 80 apps for doctors, nurses, patients | The daily digest | Scoop.it

Based on the more rigorous surveys and reports, it’s still true that clinicians are generally more eager adopters of both mobile devices and the medical apps that run on them. The persistent challenge for many iPad-toting physicians, however, is where to turn for medical app recommendations. In its efforts to be at least somewhat helpful on that front, Apple has slightly reworked and beefed up its now more visible section of “Apps For Healthcare Professionals”, which appears to be consistently featured in the AppStore’s medical section.

Emptying the Heavy Pockets in Short White Coats: Balancing Technology and the Art of Medicine - The Doctor Weighs In

Emptying the Heavy Pockets in Short White Coats: Balancing Technology and the Art of Medicine - The Doctor Weighs In | The daily digest | Scoop.it

When I was in training and cared for a patient with a disease I had not yet encountered, I went to the resident’s library and read all about the disease , its signs and symptoms, its diagnosis and treatment in Harrison’s Textbook of Medicine . I would often then pull papers from the literature and read more about the disease in order to be well prepared for rounds the next morning. Technology now provides young physicians with the ability to research and learn “on the go”–often reading about the disease process on a smartphone while walking down the hallway to see another patient
