Overview

Designed specifically for the clinician, it finds clinical evidence fast with Lane's relevance ranked article results from PubMed, UpToDate, Cochrane, DARE, BMJ and more. Our clinical query assistant gives you MeSH suggestions as you type to quickly help you write good clinical questions.

EBP experts use PICO (Patient, Intervention, Comparison, Outcome) to develop answerable patient-centered questions.

Most people search by using very simple queries. By importing terms from your PICO question to your literature search, you can more effectively hone in on clinical research pertinent to your patient's problem.
