    Dr. Ing,

    Thanks for sharing that link. I've looked for many of those forms before and it's nice having them all in one place.

    We can when it is deemed worthy by the masses. In the meantime, we'll need more.

    Probably the most useful single reference I ever used in the ED. Great for those "Ummm, my psychiatrist's name is Dr. Cone... or is it Dr. Cohen... wait, maybe it's Dr. Kahn... anyway, his office is in Manchester, NH... no, I don't know the phone number" cases at 3 a.m.

    By "deemed worthy," I mean having more resources than these few links. Though I agree, it's a great start. And thanks DS, I've used that site before...it's really helpful.

    The SDN Administration is currently undergoing a "Sticky cleanup Campaign." Some may have noticed that I combined a couple stickies above to cut down on the ones we have. In order to make a new one, I'd like it to be full of info and very useful. So keep scouring the web and include more great links, and I'll see what I can do.

    :luck:

    Wasn't sure where else to put this.

    Here's a new psychiatric newspaper that I received in the mail. It seems to have a montly useful pull-out evidence-based treatment guide for various disorders attached.

    Signing up for a subscription is free. Especially good for those OCD folks who like to have as much psychiatry-related stuff around the house at all times.

    It even has the V codes! Very cool. Just wish it included non-DSM ICD-10 codes (like my cherished "adjustment reaction").

    I always test the comprehesiveness of these types of resources by searching for 'transvestic fetishism.'

    It popped up.

    Why, I wonder, 'transvestic fetishism'?
    And what is meant by "popped up"?

    This is a database of Ki values. If I recall correctly, a Ki value is the concentration of drug needed to decrease receptor firing by half, much like a Km value. Therefore, smaller Ki values mean more binding per mg. However, you have to adjust the data to reflect different average dosages between drugs. Very informative resource once you get used to interpreting the data.

    The questions are pretty good, but I wish there were at least brief explanation to the answers. The p450 table is very thorough. There is not much else there?

    Also this was started by a fellow resident - has good amount of clinical and EBM content:
