Library Resources for Top Clinical Questions

On average, clinicians raise 1 medical knowledge question for every 2 patients seen (Del Fiol et al., 2014). Of these questions, 34% concern drug treatment, and 24% concern potential causes of a symptom, physical finding, or diagnostic test finding. (See the top 13 questions identified by the study.)

For help with these questions, the Library offers evidence-based clinical decision support resources.

To identify potential causes of a symptom or a diagnostic test finding, try these clinical information resources.
