Clinical queries

Don’t have time to write a Knowledge Summary but want to help add to the evidence-base? Then submit a clinical query.

This form allows you to submit a clinical query to Veterinary Evidence, where it will be checked and added to our online list of clinical queries for other members of the veterinary community to answer as a Knowledge Summary.

Follow these four steps:
  1. View the list of common conditions by species here: Common conditions question bank
  2. Refer to the 'checklist of information needs' document at the bottom of the page to help you identify and inform your clinical query
  3. Write your clinical query using the PICO method. See 'How to write a PICO' below 
  4. Submit your clinical query (PICO) by writing it in the appropriate tab and column in the Common conditions question bank (Google doc). It will save automatically and be viewable to everyone accessing the document. Alternatively, you can email it to the Managing Editor stating the species, common condition and sub category:
