Medscape

The free Medscape app for iPad is incredibly useful, especially for neuroosychologists working in medical settings. it's like having a medical encyclopedia on hand, (very useful if you don't know the difference between neurofibromatosis types I &II) but it goes much further, listing differential diagnoses and treatment options, and it's updated regularly. It also lists prescription and OTC medications, and their interactions.

The medscape app is particularly useful in multidisciplinary meetings when an unfamiliar diagnosis pops up, and it is also a good way to revise one's knowledge of more common conditions. And to spend time in waiting rooms reading something more informative than the magazines....

That's all for now, but I have more to share :)
