UpToDate clinical decision support tool

UpToDate is an evidence-based knowledge system that helps clinicians make the right decisions at the point of care. It contains over 10,000 articles, providing evidence-graded treatment recommendations as well as diagnostic and other information for common as well as rare conditions.

It is available on-site on Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust PCs without a password, and can also be accessed off-site by SaTH staff and students.

Off-site access

Off-site use requires either an NHS OpenAthens account, or a registration created whilst using UpToDate on-site. By creating a registration, you’ll also be able to earn CME/CPD points, and use the registration to access the mobile app.

Mobile access

The UpToDate site is designed to work on all devices so can be accessed in the same way as off-site access. A mobile app is also available and this requires the use of a personal registration created whilst using UpToDate on-site.



By logging into the mobile app with your personal registration, CME/CPD points can be recorded, and you won’t need to keep logging in. The mobile app does require an internet connection to work.
