Because this doesn't seem to have posted to the list yesterday, I'm
resending it today in hopes of a response ....

With the demise of the "Review, Tutorial" limit in Ovid Medline and PubMed,
I'm stumped as to how to extract citations for articles that offer
continuing education credits.  Ideally, I would like to set up auto-alerts
for various topics limited to CEU-granting citations/articles.  What's the
best search strategy to use?

CINAHL makes this soooooo easy, I'm surprised and amazed that this is not a
priority in Medline/PubMed.  

I did lodge an enhancement suggestion with the National Library of Medicine.
And I have the list of Journals that offer CE that was previously posted in

Subject Headings for Continuing Education seem to be about CE, not citations
to articles that offer CE.  Seems like this is a better limit than a subject
heading.  Any ideas on how to extract these types of citations?  

I will gladly summarize for the List.
