Veterinary - Research Databases: Clinical Queries

Clinical Queries tool

PubMed's Clinical Queries tool allows you to limit search results to specific clinical research categories; retrieved results are separated into Clinical Study Categories, Systematic Reviews, and Medical Genetics. This tool can be useful in locating evidence-based, clinical practice information.

3. Within the results screen, you can change the category of your search (default: therapy; other options: etiology, diagnosis, prognosis, clinical prediction guides) and the scope of your search (default: broad; you can choose to change scope to narrow, which will give fewer, more precise results). Use the appropriate dropdown menu to change search options.
