CUSOM Block 6: PubMed EBM Features

This guide collects relevant resources and available e-texts in one place for the convenience of students enrolled in CUSOM Block 6.

Figure 1 - Finding PubMed's Clinical Queries Feature

The Clinical Queries feature is designed to simplify the location of evidence-based literature.

For best results, the search should be executed in PubMed first so proper MeSH headings can be identified.

To begin, go to http://library.campbell,edu/cusom, click the PubMed link, and then click Clinical Queries as pictured below.

Remember to use the PubMed link on the CUSOM Library home page so Campbell's holdings will display in PubMed.

Figure 2 - Creating a Search in Clinical Queries

Enter the desired search terms. ( It may be helpful to identify appropriate terms in MeSH prior to using Clinical Queries.)   The search terms can be "nested" with parentheses and combined with the Boolean operators AND, NOT, OR as pictured below.
