This class focuses on using PubMed tags (filters) to narrow and add specificity to one’s PubMed searches.
PubMed Health, covering 2003 to the present, provides summaries and full texts of selected systematic reviews in one place. There is also information for consumers and clinicians based on those reviews. A search on PubMed Health runs simultaneously in PubMed. A filter is used to identify all the indexed scientific articles at the NLM that might be systematic reviews. This search includes articles from before 2003.
Information partners selected by PubMed Health to contribute clinical effectiveness information are:
England’s Behind the Headlines service is from the National Health Service (NHS Choices).
