Trip Pro

The Trip Medical Database is a resource for locating secondary evidence such as systematic reviews, evidence-based synopses and guidelines, and primary evidence such as randomised controlled trials and selected journal articles. It also covers some other material such as patient information leaflets, images and eTextbooks.

It's very quick way to find high quality clinical research evidence.

Trip Pro can be accessed on any PC within Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust, and off-site access is available via an NHS OpenAthens account. When you login with NHS OpenAthens, Trip Pro will automatically provide you with links to full-text articles (where available) including those available through our journal subscriptions.

Trip offers a fairly basic interface, but you can filter results in a number of ways using the filters on the left-hand side. These include a filter for UK guidelines, making it easy to find any NICE guidance, along with guidance from Royal Colleges and other professional bodies. Trip claims to have the largest international collection of guidelines, and these can be filtered by region.

The Pro version offers the option of advanced searching, more results, more filters and the ability to export results.
