Abstract:

PICO (Patient, Intervention, Comparison, and Outcome)is a fill-in-the-blank Web interface for searching MEDLINE/PubMed for information about conditions and diseases, interventions, comparisons of interventions (optional), and outcomes (also optional). A dropdownmenu prompts for publication type from among clinical trials, meta-analyses, systematic reviews, practice guidelines, or, if none is specified, any of the above. PICO returns MEDLINE/PubMed articles responsive to the input. PICO can also be used to structure literature searches. PICO is available through PubMed for Handhelds:http://pubmedhh.nlm.nih.gov
