PubMed Health

From the National Library of Medicine, PubMed Health “offers up-to-date information on diseases, conditions, drugs, treatment options, and healthy living, with a special focus on comparative effectiveness research from institutions around the world. PubMed Health is produced by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, a division of the National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health.”

While it is similar to MedlinePlus, the comprehensive database of consumer health information from the NLM, PubMed Health offers more information regarding comparative effectiveness research of treatments. For a more detailed analysis of the differences between the two products, see this newsletter article from the Vanderbilt University’s Eskind Biomedical Library.
