PubMed Clinical Q&A

PubMed Clinical Q&A is a collection of summaries of health information, systemic reviews and answers to clinical questions. A great searchable resource for those PBL sessions!

"Each summary contains several questions that compare treatments, for example: "How do statins compare in reducing 'bad cholesterol' (LDL-c)?"
A brief answer which highlights recent findings is available, along with a link back to the source of the evidence where more details can be found."

...just one of the many excellent full text medical ebooks available on the NCBI Bookshelf [find permanent link in the right sidebar].
