PubMed the Gold Standard ~ PubMed Health the Evidence

PubMed is enormous (over 22 million citations) so it's important to search it efficiently. Use the Clinical Queries filter to limit to clinical study categories or systematic reviews (description). The link to Clinical Queries is under PubMed Tools on the home page. Use Limits for date of publication, English, human, and age categories. Limit to Type of Article (meta-analyses, RCTs) to get the highest Levels of Evidence. Limit to Free Full Text.

When you want only the best evidence, search PubMed Health which specializes in reviews of clinical effectiveness research, with easy-to-read summaries for consumers as well as full technical reports. Clinical effectiveness research finds answers to the question “What works?” in medical and health care.
