When searching the biomedical literature, either for a quick answer to a research question, a critically appraised topic (CAT) or a systematic review, it is important not to miss relevant articles. In this hands-on workshop the necessary techniques will be covered.
What you will learn
Attention will be given to sharpening your research/clinical question, followed by framing it into PICO (Patient-Intervention-Comparison-Outcome) or DDO (Domain-Determinant-Outcome) format. Then techniques on how to search databases like PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library will be shown. Saving your search results in literature management software and fine-tuning by means of citation searching in Scopus and Web of Science will also be covered.
