Our training courses provide you with well-founded knowledge that is based on many years of practical experience in these areas and is constantly updated. In addition to the transfer of knowledge, the focus is on the practical implementation of this knowledge.
In addition to PubMed, the database of the National Library of Medicine, which is accessible free of charge on the web, a large number of databases are now available to information seekers from a wide variety of database providers. In addition to the so-called classic search, each of these database hosts offer a search via a so-called web interface, which is more or less based on the search strategies of the search engines. However, these interfaces differ from each other and are constantly being reworked.
For the user, this means that he or she has to keep on learning in order to be able to use these instruments optimally for their purposes.
In our training courses, which we tailor to the individual needs of users, we provide you with the knowledge you need to use these databases effectively. The focus is therefore on the practical implementation and thus the deepening and consolidation of the acquired knowledge.
PubMed is the search interface of the Medline database and other resources. It is the world's largest and most important medical bibliographic database. It is produced by the National Library of Medicine (USA) and is accessible free of charge. All core medical areas but also peripheral areas such as health care, biology, biochemistry and psychology or sports medicine are taken into account. The medical subject headings (MeSH) are used for factual and thematic indexing. The search and display language is English.
In order to improve drug transparency, drug safety and the control of the therapy-oriented use of drugs, the drug information system AMIS is made available for research.
AMIS contains data from the drug approval authorities BfArM (Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices), PEI (Paul Ehrlich Institute - Federal Institute for Vaccines and Biomedical Drugs) and BVL (Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety).
The ABDA databases contain comprehensive data and facts on pharmaceuticals.
Based, for example, on the name or active ingredient of a drug, information on its use and composition, risks and interactions as well as current reports can be researched.
