Leaders in continuing professional development (CPD) appreciate that the learning of most physicians and health care professionals is directed by patient encounters in the clinical environment. The reported number of clinical questions prompting additional information seeking has increased over the years.
The medical literature bears witness to Internet (or online) searches as playing a major role to answer questions arising in clinical practice. Information from different online resources can often vary for the same topics, quality of evidence cited, cost, and credit for continuing education. Conscientious decision making for individual patients is not merely from randomized trials and meta-analyses but from tracking the best evidence with which to answer a specific clinical question.
