Free trial to BMJ Clinical Evidence until 30th September

September 28, 2011

Clinical Evidence is the international source of the best available evidence on the effects of common clinical interventions. Its systematic reviews summarise the current state of knowledge and uncertainty about the prevention and treatment of clinical conditions, based on thorough searches and appraisal of the literature. It is neither a textbook of medicine nor a set of guidelines. It describes the best available evidence from systematic reviews, RCTs, and observational studies where appropriate, and if there is no good evidence it says so. This trial is available until the 30th September.
