Consult is a crowdsourced community of physicians and medical students. Community members often post cases while their patients' treatment is ongoing, seeking clinical guidance from peers. We encourage Consult contributors to provide updates and outcomes whenever possible.
Here are some suggestions for finding case updates and outcomes on Consult:
- FOLLOW A CASE: If you use the Medscape App and follow a case, you will receive push notifications on your phone when there are comments on these cases. (Please note: Currently, you will receive a notification for every reply. To turn off notifications, unfollow the case.)
- FEATURED TAB: Look for the case in the "Featured" feed. We add "RESOLVED" or "UPDATE" when a case author has posted an outcome, and we duplicate the response at the top of the comment thread. This tab also features cases with expert recommendations.
- AUTHOR PROFILE: Visit the case author's profile (click on the name) and look in the "Responses" feed to find updates and outcomes on specific cases from that author. If you follow an author, you can also find posts by navigating to your profile and then selecting the author's name from your "Following" list.
- ASK THE AUTHOR: Comment on a post, requesting that the author add an outcome.
