I'm a retired RN who worked in Oncology and Infection Control, among many other areas, and to keep somewhat current in the areas of my interest, Medscape is the site to read. You do need to register with Medscape, but the service is free. The news in healthcare today is overwhelming. Medscape enables you to choose your areas of interest and sends you articles and information in those specific areas. You can get news about new protocols, current best practices, articles, and viewpoints. Most articles have a comment section, and sometimes you can learn even more from what other readers share. Doctors, nurses, pharmacists, healthcare administrators and other healthcare personnel are among the readers and responders. Medscape is a rich resource, full of the latest in medical and general healthcare. As a nurse, I also get Medscape Nurses, which obviously has information specific to nursing. Medscape also has a feature where short quizzes are given in an enormous range of topics, like kidney disease, acne, knee problems and on to almost infinity. These are not only fun to test your knowledge, but great information is available regarding the correct answers. If you want to keep up with healthcare, whether you are working in that field or not, please try Medscape!

Medscape used to feature a CME tracking device where users could enter outside CME actvities for record keeping. They foolishly did away with that feature, saying they couldn't prove the person did that outside CME. It was never their obligation to prove any outside CME.
Additionally, Medscape will NOT issue a CME certificate for a CME activity they sponsored to a Physician Assistant, because they selfishly think PAs are second class citizens.

Medscape is a resource for healthcare professionals but is also often used by consumers as well. It was sold to WebMD in Dec 2001. Medscape was founded to help physicians sort through the vast amount of healthcare information to improve patient care. They do a great job of sorting through the articles and data and bringing relevant information to the public. I am writing this review as part of my H1N1 guide and one of the best places I found that compares the LAIV (nasal vaccine) vs the injectable vaccine was on medscape. I will give you the link below so you can read it, but the catch is medscape requires you to register first with your email before you can access their content
