    • Learn to use filtered databases and apply knowledge from:
      Ovid Evidence Based Medicine Reviews.
      CDSR (Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews)
      DARE (Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects)
      PubMed Clinical Queries.

    • These include all Cochrane Reviews (and protocols) prepared by the 50 Cochrane Review Groups in The Cochrane Collaboration.
      They investigate the effects of interventions for prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation.
      Each systematic review addresses a clearly formulated question; for example:
      Can antibiotics help alleviate the symptoms of a sore throat? 
      All the existing primary research on a topic that meets certain criteria is searched for and collated, and then assessed using stringent guidelines, to establish whether or not there is conclusive evidence about a specific treatment.
      The reviews are updated regularly, ensuring that treatment decisions can be based on the most up-to-date and reliable evidence.
      Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR)
    • Format of Cochrane Systematic Review:
      A title, citation details, and contact addresses.
      An abstract in a structured format.
      The text of the review, consisting of:
      an introduction (background and objective),
      materials (selection criteria and search strategy) and methods,
      results (description of studies, methodological quality, and results),
      discussion, and
      Standard tables and figures, showing:
      characteristics of the included studies,
      specification of the interventions that were compared,
      the results of the included studies, and
      a log of the studies that were excluded.
    • DARE complements the CDSR by quality-assessing and summarizing reviews that have not yet been carried out by the Cochrane Collaboration.
      DARE records cover topics such as diagnosis, prevention, rehabilitation, screening, and treatment.
      DARE also includes reviews of the wider determinants of health such as housing, transport, and social care where these impact directly on health, or have the potential to impact on health.
      DARE covers a broad range of health related interventions and thousands of abstracts of reviews in fields as diverse as diagnostic tests, public health, health promotion, pharmacology, surgery, psychology, and the organization and delivery of health care.
      DARE is produced by the National Health Services' Centre for Reviews and Dissemination (NHS CRD) at the University of York.
      Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects (DARE)

      Clinical Queries
      Special filters help you to find clinically based articles focused on therapy, diagnosis, etiology, prognosis, clinical prediction guidelines, systematic reviews, meta-analyses, or medical genetics.
      Search for Systematic Reviews - filters for systematic reviews, meta-analyses, reviews of clinical trials, evidence-based medicine, consensus development conferences, and guidelines.
      Search by Clinical Study Category- filters for best types of studies for the type of clinical question you are asking.
      You can also use Ovid Medline for Medline Clinical Queries.
      PubMed Clinical Queries
    • ACP PIER in STAT!Ref (American College of Physicians)
      American College of Physicians' – Physicians Information and Education Resource is a web-based decision-support tool designed for rapid point-of-care delivery of up-to-date, evidence-based guidance for clinicians(over 400 summaries).
      Frequently updated (Monthly Content Updates and Module Additions)
      Consistently structured for rapid access
      Search or browse by organ system
      Integrated drug reference (AHFS DI® Essentials™)
      2011 Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) includes 186 measures.
