PDQ Evidence : new search engine for evidence about health systems

PDQ ("pretty darn quick")-Evidence facilitates rapid access to the best available evidence for decisions about health systems. It includes systematic reviews, overviews of reviews (including evidence-based policy briefs), primary studies included in systematic reviews and structured summaries of that evidence.

In addition, it includes translations of the titles and abstracts of included records to facilitate searching in different languages and it is continually updated by searching multiple sources of systematic reviews and overviews of reviews, including the Cochrane database of systematic reviews (CDSR), the Health Technology Assessment Database, the EPPI-Centre Evidence Library, the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, NICE public health guidelines and systematic reviews and several others.
