ClinicalKey for Nurses

Empowering nurses with trusted resources for clinical answers.

Get started

As your clinical teams care for an aging population, they’re carrying out treatment plans for more complex conditions. At the same time, patients and their families are increasingly engaged in their own care. This generates additional questions for the care team as patients are more involved in shared decision-making. If clinicians aren’t consulting a standardized, trusted resource for clinical answers, they risk the potential for inconsistent care, unsatisfying patient encounters and negative outcomes.

With Elsevier’s ClinicalKey, you’ll ensure that your care teams have access to evidence-based information, so they can answer complex questions related to their patients’ conditions. And with your nurses using the same trusted answers, you will help create a more consistent patient experience based on the most current standards of care.

Improve care and drive consistency

With ClinicalKey, your nurses will be able to:

Improve patient care with trusted resources – As the complexity of patient conditions increases, a lack of evidence-based information to guide how treatment is carried out can lead to suboptimal care and unwanted complications. ClinicalKey connects your nurses and allied health professionals with trusted answers and gives them in-depth access to current evidence whenever and wherever needed.

Drive care consistency among all levels of nurses and allied health professionals – Building a foundation for clinical knowledge is difficult when your clinical team is relying on unvetted, outdated, or insufficient sources. With ClinicalKey, clinicians have access to one trusted solution that offers content that is updated continuously, backed by the latest evidence, and derived from core foundational textbooks, procedural videos, and cutting-edge research findings.
