On medical Wikis

Posted by iskanbasal on January 9, 2008

This is an interesting post from David Rothman, where he talks about the importance of medical wikis directed to physicians. David is right when he says that there are many sites which give detailed and excellent information for the consumer, the best of these remains Medlineplus maintaned by the National Library of Medicine, and now it is the time to have free access to some trustable source for rapid and detailed information for the medical professional. I have listed some of the promissed medical wikis in the right bar here. My suggestion is that big and famous institutions such as the Cleveland clinic (where the founder of askdrwiki works and also clinical cases site is established) and other similar institutions have all the potential to build such wikis and to maintain them updated. The other thing I would like to say that thousands of physicians all over the world would applause this and donate to support it.
