How ClinicalKey works
ClinicalKey is a clinical search engine that employs a single search box that utilises keyword searching. Post-search, results may be narrowed/filtered as follows:
Filter it - ClinicalKey can narrow results by source type, study type, specialty, date and Australian only content. Results update automatically.
Review it - View your search history to review or retry recent questions, including any filters you may have applied.
Access your search history by clicking on the Search History link at the top-right of screen
Save it - If you find something interesting in your results but need to come back to it, save it for later. Customised, searchable tags keep your content organised.
Automatically add images to a presentation
ClinicalKey's Presentation Maker allows you to add content as soon as you find it – without interrupting your search.
When you find images in ClinicalKey that you’d like to use in a presentation, you can save them for later use without leaving the results page. Images can be dragged and dropped from the search results list into Presentation Maker, or saved using the “Add to Presentation” button. You can also view, move and delete content within the Presentation Maker panel.
