Today we wanted to shine the light on Trip Database – a tool which allows healthcare professionals to find the best available evidence to answer their clinical questions.
The database contains links to thousands of sites, offering the highest levels of evidence, such as systematic reviews and clinical guidelines. As well as providing research evidence users are also able to search across other content types such as images,videos,educational courses,news and patient information leaflets.
These graphics better show the features of this resource & the benefits of using it as a healthcare professional:
If your search highlights research studies that aren’t directly accessible in full-text never fear we are able to offer Trust staff a document supply service (contact us directly for more information).
If you want to find out more about using Trip Database these links are a good place to start:
The Trip Database blog contains useful guides, tips & tricks. You can access it here.
Access to the premium version of the Trip database (Trip Pro) is freely available to everyone in the NHS in England (via Health Education England). It’s worth noting that Trip Pro is accessed via IP address (so you would need to access the database using an NHS computer).
