Use PubMed Clinical Queries to Find Clinical Evidence Quickly

You may already use PubMed to find information on clinical or disease-specific topics, but did you know that PubMed has a tool that will connect you to clinical evidence more quickly? Created with the busy clinician in mind, PubMed’s Clinical Queries applies built-in filters to your search terms, saving you the time of performing a full literature search. You can filter one search by two clinical research categories: clinical studies or COVID-19.

For the clinical studies category, you can drill down to articles within specific domains: therapy, clinical prediction guides, diagnosis, etiology, or prognosis.

To access clinical research related to COVID-19, choose the COVID-19 clinical research category for your search, and narrow to articles on treatment, prevention, transmission, forecasting, long COVID, and more.
