RADA G, Gabriel y LETELIER S, Luz María. How can an internist keep updated in the XXIst century?. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2009, vol.137, n.5, pp. 701-708. ISSN 0034-9887. doi: 10.4067/S0034-98872009000500016.
The amount of information in health care has steadily grown in the past years and this trend will probably continue in the near future. Traditional ways to keep updated are no longer sufficient, particularly in broad areas of knowledge as Internal Medicine or Family Medicine. Therefore, it is necessary to use new approaches. The present article describes five proposals for the clinician that tries to maintain updated but feels overwhelmed by the amount of available information.
