Resources for digging deeper and asking better questions on Ebola

Tuesday, President Obama mentioned Ebola in his State of the Union address saying, “the world needs to use this lesson to build a more effective global effort to prevent the spread of future pandemics.” The next morning, I led a Poynter/Association of Healthcare Journalists seminar to help journalists learn lessons from the Ebola response that we can use when the next epidemic/pandemic emerges.

ClinicalTrials: This site tracks trials completed, in process and recruiting.

PubMed: There are 24 million citations for biomedical literature here.

MedPage Today: This is written for providers with lots of new news.

HealthMap: Mapping alerts around the globe. Some are official alerts, some media reports. Read more
