TRIP is a tool to find and use high-quality clinical research evidence.
TRIP also allows to search across other content types including:
- patient information leaflets
- educational courses
TRIP looks at search terms and also searches for synonyms. In searching for information the use of synonyms is vital. Some people may say cancer of the prostate, others prostate cancer and another option is prostatic carcinoma. You can view what synonyms are used via the ‘Synonyms’ tab at the top of the search results. This also works for abbreviations. If you conduct a search for IBS, TRIP also searches for irritable bowel syndrome.
Find TRIP, and other medical databases, via the University Library list of databases.
