What are summaries?

The National Collaborating Centre for Methods and Tools states:

Summaries provide an outline of management options for a given health issue. Summaries incorporate the highest quality and most synthesized sources of research evidence.

Summaries include clinical and practice guidelines.

Where can I find them?

Most guidelines are not listed in CINAHL or Medline, although some may be published in an association's journal. Here are some other sources for this type of evidence.
