PubMed Health Services Research Queries

This new Health Services Research (HSR) queries page will be extremely helpful for searches on healthcare quality and costs. There are six queries (aka hedges or filters) for you to choose from:

Process assessment
Outcomes assessment
Qualitative Research

You can also select a broad, sensitive search or a narrow, specific search.

As with the Clinical Queries page, you can type your search terms in a query box, select the query category and the scope, and then click on 'Go'. The results page is the PubMed results page and from that point on, you can use any of the features that you would normally use (limits, related articles, etc.).

You really should give this a try!

Definitions of the queries are included on the HSR queries page.
