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.

After conducting a search for an EBP by name, you can further refine results by using the filtering options found on the right hand side of your results screen. For instance, you can narrow your results strictly to Controlled Trials.
