TRIP Database

Some of the third (coming on fourth...) years out there will know I've been asking people to search the TRIP database to find out about when to recall patients for check-ups.

This database is useful if you want to get to higher level information quickly - that is, clinical practice guidelines, systematic reviews and good primary studies.

However, it will not provide you with an exhaustive list of papers. For this you'll need to go back to Medline or Embase.

A nice element of TRIP is being able to save your searches automatically and to record anything you learnt whilst reading the paper. For this you'll need to register - but it's free and very simple.

I encourage you to start asking questions and searching for answers using TRIP
