Importing citations into RefWorks from Epocrates, Dynamed, and UpToDate must be done manually. Each of these resources has their own recommendations for formatting a citation. 

  • DynaMed: cite the way you would a website
  • Epocrates: cite the way you would a website 
  • UpTpDate: cite the way you would book chapter in a book titled UpToDate, edited by Ted. W. Post, published by UpToDate in Waltham, MA. There are no page numbers to cite, and the publication year for any topic should be the current year

However, be sure to refer to your chosen citation style's formatting guide for concrete guidance. See the  AMA OR APA guides for assistance.
