Trip prides itself on the comprehensive coverage of clinical guidelines; we’re not aware of any resource that comes close in this regard. Given the importance we have spent considerable resource trying to improve it further. One aspect has been our guideline grading project, which we hope to instigate sometime in the next 3-4 months.

More immediately, we are delighted to announce the first output from our project to mine PubMed for clinical guidelines. Up until this weekend all our guidelines were found via guideline repositories, professional website associations etc. This is great, but we’re aware that, for a number of reasons, this misses many guidelines. So, we have started a project to locate guidelines in PubMed and the first results are now available. We have focussed on national guidelines and have extracted guidelines from Japan, Poland, Brazil, France, Germany, Spain, Saudi Arabia Italy and many others.

Due to this work we have added just under 1,000 new guidelines with more to follow over the next few months.
