Internet in Medicine University Course: RSS and Twitter

The third week of the Internet in Medicine university accredited course was dedicated to RSS and microblogging. In the first slideshow, I described what RSS is, how to use trend trackers and which tools can help you follow the medical literature easily.

  • How to read RSS (browser -example=Firefox; Google Reader; desktop-based readers – Feeddemon).
  • An example, a real tutorial about how to follow the latest articles published on NEJM. Step by step.
  • Best friend of docs? Of course, Pubmed. How to follow Pubmed updates easily.
  • What to do when a site doesn’t have RSS feed.
  • Biowizard.com and other 3rd party Pubmed tools

A step-by-step guide on Webicina.com about how to keep yourself up-to-date easily.
