In daily terms, this means about 1500 new MEDLINE articles, including 60 randomized trials, being published every day ......Hence there is no shortage of research to read, but there is a shortage of time to read it.” </li></ul><ul><li>Source: </li></ul><ul><li>Glaziou, Paul. Managing the Evidence Flood. Surgical Clinics of North America 2006 86(1): 193-194. </li></ul>

PubMed/Ovid MEDLINE … you want reviews of individual clinically applicable original studies. ACP Journal Club … you have a therapy question and want comprehensive synthesis of all relevant RCTs.
