UpToDate Pathways Podcasts

Welcome to our clinical podcast series centering on our new product, UpToDate® Pathways. UpToDate Pathways have been developed for use at the point of care to guide clinicians when managing a patient with a specific problem. Using these dynamic workflow tools, the clinician inputs patient-specific data and, through a series of key decision nodes, is stepped through a pathway leading to optimal management of a specific patient.

In each of these podcasts, an UpToDate clinical expert involved in the development of the related pathway will discuss some of the challenges medical professionals face when making these decisions.

You may also wish to explore our UpToDate Talk clinical podcasts, featuring clinician experts discussing recent medical literature, and health care industry podcasts that explore initiatives with an impact on quality and patient safety.
