Monkeypox content made free to clinicians worldwide

The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared monkeypox a global health emergency. With the growing severity of the outbreak, it is vital for all clinicians to have access to the latest evidence-based information.

To fulfill the global need for evidence-based information amid this outbreak, Wolters Kluwer has made monkeypox content on UpToDate free of charge, and created a monkeypox resource page that includes links to relevant medical journal research articles in Ovid.

“In order to help clinicians and researchers worldwide responding to the monkeypox outbreak, we are providing them with the latest evidence-based information that ultimately helps them to provide the best care to their patients,” said Stacey Caywood, Chief Executive Officer of Wolters Kluwer, Health. The resource page can be accessed here.

Monkeypox is a viral zoonosis (a virus transmitted to humans from animals) with symptoms similar to those seen in the past in smallpox patients, although it is clinically less severe. Human-to-human transmission of monkeypox virus can occur in several ways: 

  • Direct contact – spread occurs primarily through direct contact with infectious sores, scabs, or body fluids.
  • Indirect contact through materials – Transmission can occur through contact with materials that have been contaminated with infected material, such as clothing or linens.
  • Vertical transmission  – The virus can cross the placenta from the mother to her fetus, which can lead to congenital monkeypox.
