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.

Effects of Aerobic and Resistance Exercise in Older Adults With Rheumatoid Arthritis: A Randomized Controlled Trial To evaluate the effect of a moderate-to-high-intensity, aerobic and resistance exercise with person-centered guidance in older adults with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), through a randomized controlled multicenter trial.Older adults (ages 65-75 years) with RA (n = 74) were randomized to either a 20-week exercise intervention at a gym (n = 36) or to home-based exercise of light (...) ). At the 12-month follow-up, there were no significant differences in change between the 2 groups on the HAQ DI score. A significant between-group difference was found for change in an endurance test (P = 0.022).Aerobic and resistance exercise with person-centered guidance improved physical fitness in terms of aerobic capacity, endurance, and strength in older adults with RA.© 2018 The Authors.

Early diagnosis and treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and axial Spondylarthritis (axial SpA) can limit the impact of disease outcomes. This study evaluated the effectiveness of a referral program on the identification of patients with RA and axial SpA.This was an observational, prospective, randomized (by clusters) study conducted in Portugal (...) or axial SpA cases confirmed by the rheumatologist of the reference hospital.RA-Substudy: A total of 340 patients were recruited (144 in the RSA-exposed group; 196 in the control). RA diagnosis confirmation was 7.3% (95%CI, 2.1-12.5%) in RSA group versus 2.7% (95%CI, 0.0-5.7%) in control group RSA effect was positive but moderate (4.6%) and not statistically significant (95% CI, 0.0%-11.8%; p=0.222, adjusted for clustering effect). Rate of confirmed arthritis of any type was 16.9% (n=14/83) in the RSA
