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.
For further information on Trip click on any of the questions/sections on the left-hand side of this page. But if you still have questions please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org

Surgical site infections (...) (SSIs) occur in approximately 2.0% to 3.5% of surgeries and have potentially serious consequences including death. These infections prolong hospitalization and increase costs. Whole-body bathing with an antiseptic such as chlorhexidine gluconate is widely employed before surgery to decrease the number of bacteria on the skin, in an attempt to decrease the incidence of SSIs. Despite their widespread use, it has not been conclusively shown that bathing or showering with these antiseptics actually
