Search filters are a search strategy developed by experts to objectively retrieve all possible items e.g. articles on a specific topic from a database. In this way everyone can conduct optimal searches even when they lack time or the skills of a specialist librarian. The Palliative Care Search Filter for PubMed, developed by the CareSearch project, was one of the first topic filters to appear. Since then CareSearch has used this expertise in the development of PubMed search filters to create these for a number of topics. Here you can access many of the search filters developed by CareSearch. If you want to use the Palliative care filter to quickly explore different related topics go to Quick Search.
