What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

2. Testing behavioral interventions to optimize participation in a population-based colorectal cancer screening program in Catalonia, Spain

Testing behavioral interventions to optimize participation in a population-based colorectal cancer screening program in Catalonia, Spain The aim of the study was to measure the effect of three cost-neutral behavioral interventions on participation compared to the standard invitation letter in a population-based colorectal cancer screening program in 2014. For that purpose, a four-arm randomized field trial was conducted among 5077 individuals aged 50 to 69 years. Over an 8-week period, each

5. Strategies for Detecting Colorectal Cancer in Patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease: A Cochrane Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

Strategies for Detecting Colorectal Cancer in Patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease: A Cochrane Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis Patients with longstanding ulcerative colitis (UC) and colonic Crohn's disease (CD) have an increased risk of colorectal cancer (CRC). We assess the effectiveness of endoscopic surveillance in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) for diagnosing CRC and reducing CRC-related mortality.MEDLINE, EMBASE, and CENTRAL were searched from inception to 19 (...) on the degree of heterogeneity; pooled odds ratios (ORs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were calculated using the Mantel-Haenszel method.Five observational studies evaluating 7199 IBD patients were included; no RCTs met criteria for inclusion. There are limited new studies evaluating this clinical question (last included study published 2014). There was a significantly higher rate of cancer detection in the non-surveillance group (3.2%, 135/4256) compared to the surveillance group (1.8%, 53/2895
