What does the "Email" function in UpToDate online do?

This feature allows you to send an UpToDate topic or graphic by email, along with a 30-day guest pass (one per recipient).

To email a topic, click Email in the topic tools are in the upper right. To email a graphic, click the Email option at the top of a graphic view.

Email opens a dialog box in which you can specify address information and email options. You can keep the default message text or edit it, as desired. If you are an individual subscriber, you have the option to include a complimentary guest pass for one recipient (this option is not available for institutional users or patient subscribers). When you have finished, click Send to email the individual graphic or the complete topic, including all graphics and references.
