Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care. Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Their motto is ‘Find evidence fast’.
As well as research evidence Trip also allows clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.
*NEW* -a free CASP app where you can get TRIP easily on your mobile phone
A mobile app called BestEvidence that enables users to get access to the best available evidence at the time it is needed. It works by accessing the TRIP database which searches many resources, including PubMed and the Cochrane Library. A special free CASP version of BestEvidence is available. To get this on your mobile phone open the web browser on your phone and go to www.BestEvidence.Info/CASP which will take you to the page where you can register an account. (BestEvidence can also be used on a table or desktop computer.) To get the BestEvidence icon to appear on your phone (so that you don’t have to go to your web browser every time) simple select “Add to home screen” from the browser’s menu so that it works like any other app.
