NLM Links HSTAT and PubMed
HSTAT is a free, electronic resourcethat provides access to the full-text of documents useful in health care decision making (see HSTAT Fact Sheet). HSTAT includes: clinical practice guidelines, quick-reference guides for clinicians, consumer brochures, and evidence reports sponsored by the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR); AHCPR technology assessment reports; National Institutes of Health (NIH) consensus development conference and technology assessment reports; NIH Warren G. Magnuson Clinical Center research protocols; HIV/AIDS Treatment Information Service (ATIS) resource documents; Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (SAMHSA/CSAT) treatment improvement protocols; and the Public Health Service (PHS) Preventive Services Task Force Guide to Clinical Preventive Services. It also provides a link to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Prevention Guidelines Database.
PubMed provides access, free of charge, to MEDLINE, a database of nearly 9 million bibliographic citations and abstracts in the fields of medicine, nursing, dentistry, veterinary medicine, health care systems, and preclinical sciences (see PubMed Fact Sheet). PubMed also contains links to the full-text versions of articles at participating publishers' Web sites.
NLM is pleased to announce that it now provides links between selected documents/references found in HSTAT and their MEDLINE records found via PubMed. Users searching HSTAT documents will find links to their MEDLINE records via PubMed. Reciprocally, users searching PubMed will find links in MEDLINE records to the full text documents residing in HSTAT. In addition, users searching HSTAT may choose to simultaneously run their search against MEDLINE via PubMed.
