Clinical Queries

Clinical Queries are specialised PubMed/Medline searches intended for clinicians. They use filters to limit results to articles that report research conducted with specific methodologies. Results can be sorted by the following categories: Etiology, Diagnosis, Therapy, Prognosis, and Clinical Prediction Guidelines.

Scopes can be set to maximise sensitivity (to broaden results) or maximise specificity (to narrow results).
