TIPS for using the TRIP database

  • Using only one term can bring back a large number of results, so think of additional terms to help qualify the search e.g. asthma and steroids.
  • On the results page you can filter your results based on an evidence based medicine hierarchy e.g. evidence-based synopses, systematic reviews. Use the ‘Filter by’ function on the right-hand side of the screen.
  • It automatically searches Medline for you and displays the results.
  • It searches the “Big 4” i.e. JAMA, New England Journal of Medicine, the Lancet and BMJ
