PubMed Health – systematic reviews

PubMed HealthPubMed Health is a National Library of Medicine resource for patients and clinicians. It focuses on what works with disease prevention and treatment (clinical effectiveness). It searches PubMed for systematic reviews, but also contains executive summaries of those systematic reviews. Executive summaries highlight the findings of systematic reviews in an easy to read form; they cut to the chase, so to speak. PubMed Health contents include DARE (Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects) reviews, clinical guides, and a list of methods resources such as avoiding bias. Another useful piece to PubMed Health includes the A to Z drug list. The results discuss medication routes, drug class, and provides links to the evidence as well as summaries for consumers.
