What is FirstConsult?

First Consult (FC) is a clinical decision support tool that summarizes sources of evidence, primarily from the Cochrane Collaboration and the National Guideline Clearinghouse. The purpose of FirstConsult is to provide busy health care practitioners with high quality clinical answers at the point of care.  To learn more about FirstConsult see Elsevier's ClinicalKey: FirstConsult help page.

FirstConsult is part of ClinicalKey and you can access this resource from your mobile device anytime using the links to ClinicalKey from the library. ClinicalKey utilizes response design so no app is necessary  However, you can utilize a mobile app version of FirstConsult. See the "Mobile Options" tab of this guide to learn more.
