Conclusion

Keeping up-to-date should not be too difficult for prescribers in developed countries; it can be far from easy in some parts of the world where access to independent sources of drug information is very limited. But wherever you live and work it is important to develop a strategy to maximize your access to the key information you need for optimal benefit of the drugs you prescribe. Be aware of the limitations of some types of information, and spend your time on information that is worth it.
