Clinical Queries in PubMed

You can find the PubMed Clinical Queries page under PubMed Services in the blue scan column on the left. But if you want a list of all the topic-specific PubMed queries provided by the National Library of Medicine (NLM) Bibliographic Services Division, check out the Special Queries (appears in the same blue scan column right under Clinical Queries).

The clinical queries page allows you to do three types of searches: search by clinical study category, find systematic reviews, or medical genetics searches.

Health services research study categories include appropriateness, process assessment, outcomes assessment, costs, economics, and qualitative research. Click on Special Queries to get to the health services research filters.

The best way for you to get a feel for how these work is to give it a try!
