A key issue in medical malpractice cases is whether the health care provider met accepted standards in his or her treatment of the patient. The National Guideline Clearinghouse is a government-sponsored research tool that allows one to search for the medical care guidelines and standards of care that are specific to a variety of diseases, conditions and treatments. Patients can search for guidelines by disease, type of treatment, or medical organization.
The National Institute of Health’s PubMed is huge, easy to use database of information on nearly all of the medical journal articles written in the past 40 years. Users can search by keyword, author, and journal title. Most of the articles found provided free summaries of their content, and some link to free online versions of the full article.
