Trip Database (Turning Evidence into Practice)


  • Trip allow users to quickly and easily find high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care. Users can search using PICO question format and results are broken down by level of evidence. Sources include Cochrane, National Guideline Clearinghouse, PubMed, and more.
  • Links may take you to publisher's pages with a pay-wall. Never pay for articles!!! Instead, try searching the title of the article in the 'Everything' search on the library's homepage to see if the full-text article is available through one of our databases. If not, you can request it through ILL.
