Search PubMed/MEDLINE via PICO

A PICO search in PubMed would be very nice and something extra to the Clinical Queries, but currently it is only possible via PDA's. You can play the search on a normal computer as well, but there are a few disadvantages:
  • The form of the PICO search is limited. No refine, limitations or anything
  • Fulltext links only directly to the wellknown publishers who make their logo's visible in PUBMED. I have not yet found possiblity for Outside Tools integration, such as SFX library icons
  • any form of citation management is missing

But for instructional/educational purposes it could be very usefull!
