In little over 24 hours we’ve made some significant changes to the combat injuries filter. We’ve increased the yield of higher-quality articles from 2,000 to nearly 4,000. In conversation with people it’s become apparent that simply pointing to a large number of results isn’t great – as it suggests the user will have to browse the articles. In actual fact, they are more likely to have a clinical question.
So, we’re going to try to create an evidence table, pre-loaded with possible questions. As with the previous post, this table should be added to as and when people reach out. If you have suggestions, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. And, to be clear, we’re not experts in this domain, hence being very open to help.

Thanks to Tom for highlighting refugee health. The following do not have any combat setting filter, they’re just total topic results:

Kate has highlighted the wonderful Evidence Aid. They have a number of pertinent evidence collections, including Health of refugees and asylum seekers.
