Searching LactMed and LiverTox for Drug Effects
For health sciences librarians looking for resources on the effects of drugs, the National Library of Medicine maintains two relevant databases: LactMed and LiverTox. Both of these databases are located in the NLM Bookshelf and are searchable through PubMed.
This webinar will give a brief introduction to Bookshelf, LactMed and LiverTox. Using sample search requests from practicing health sciences librarians, we will explore these databases for information on:
• Substance Use Disorder and the effects of harm reduction medications on lactation and the nursing infant.
• Risk of acetaminophen toxicity and polypharmacy for the geriatric population.
Register here. PLEASE NOTE: Registration closes at 5:00 PM ET on Monday, June 22, 2020.
