PubMed Health includes some new information support tools! The key feature is a dictionary that will be used increasingly across all our resources. We’re delighted that it includes information from our newest partner, NIH’s National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI). Check out our blog for more information: http://1.usa.gov/1k4VLjm

Frequent migraines? About 2% of people have them more than 15 days of the month. AHRQ has systematically reviewed the evidence. Read more about this at our blog - with links to evidence-based info for children and adolescents to read, too. http://1.usa.gov/133K8kz

PubMed Health’s curated collection of systematic reviews now allows PubMed users to go from a clinical trial to systematic reviews that have considered it. Our blog has more information and an example.

All about reviews of clinical effectiveness research
Introduction

Information on conditions and treatments from the world's largest medical library. Find out what works.

PubMed Health specializes in reviews of clinical effectiveness research, with easy-to-read summaries for consumers as well as full technical reports. Clinical effectiveness research finds answers to the question “What works?” in medical and health care.

PubMed Health is a service provided by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) at the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM). The NLM is the world's largest medical library.

There are around 25,000 systematic reviews in PubMed Health, and more are added every week. A search on PubMed Health runs simultaneously in PubMed. A filter is used to identify all the indexed scientific articles at the NLM that might be systematic reviews. 

We gather free full text resources on understanding clinical effectiveness research and making health choices here on PubMed Health.

On G+ we will highlight selected systematic reviews, analyses of the science behind stories making headlines and new resources at PubMed Health. We're also on Twitter: @PubMedHealth.

We do not answer personal health questions. More on commenting policy:

To maintain a respectful dialogue, we've posted the guidelines of our comment policy below. In short:

Stay focused. All viewpoints are welcome, but comments should remain relevant to PubMed Health. 

Be respectful. Personal attacks, profanity, and aggressive behavior are prohibited. Instigating arguments in a disrespectful way is also prohibited. 

Tell the truth. Spreading misleading or false information is prohibited. 

No spam. Repeated posting of identical or very similar content in a counter-productive manner is prohibited — this includes posts aggressively promoting services or products. 



We retain the discretion to determine which comments violate our comment policy. We also reserve the right to remove and/or not allow comments to get posted. The views expressed within posted comments do not necessarily reflect those of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, or the federal government.

We recognize that the Web is a 24/7 medium, and your comments are welcome at any time. However, given the need to manage federal resources (i.e. - your tax dollars), moderating and posting comments should only be expected to occur during regular business hours.

Reporters are asked to send questions to the necessary media office through their normal channels and to refrain from submitting questions here as comments. Reporter questions will not be posted nor answered.

This comment policy is valid for all discussions on any HHS managed forum. Thank you for taking the time to review our comment policy. We encourage your participation in our discussion and look forward to an active exchange of ideas.
