If you need fast access to reliable evidence based clinical information we recommend that you try ClinicalKey.

The search function is similar to Google but you can filter your  results by study type – systematic reviews etc., date, speciality or content type.

You may just want to browse the latest issue of Lancet: Oncology; you may need a quick overview of Fibromyalgia; perhaps you need to check a fact in Gray’s Basic Anatomy or need an image to illustrate a presentation about Diabetic Foot or a video to explain venous cannula insertion to a group of students.  ClinicalKey can provide quick access to all of these and so much more.
