Primary care: Evidence-based search engines

Evidence Based Resources for Primary Care Staff in Bucks

Primary care > Search engines

There are many evidence-based search engines which only contain high quality healthcare links. Google covers many different fields and topics and has no quality filter so reliable sites are listed along with unreliable ones. This puts the responsibility on you as the user to distinguish between high quality and low quality sites. Give these a try instead.

The NHS Knowledge and Library Hub brings together a vast range of databases, journals, NICE guidance and other support tools in one place. It is designed to give quick and easy access through a secure online platform, we hope this will help practitioners, trainees and students with their professional development and evidence-based care.
