Part 1: Structured Approach to Searching the Medical Literature for Knowledge Syntheses

Audience: University of Toronto graduate students and faculty engaged in health science research. UTORids will be required to participate. (if you are affiliated with UofT but do not know your UTORid, email: kaitlin.fuller[at]utoronto.ca). **Please register using an UofT email address eg. @utoronto.ca or @mail.utoronto.ca**

This workshop follows a flipped-classroom model, which means there is pre-class work (30-40min) that is required to be completed before joining us online for class. This pre-class work will be available in Quercus.

Learning Objectives (pre-class work and online class):

  • Identify the key differences between systematic reviews, scoping reviews, and literature reviews, as they relate to the search
  • Incorporate tools and resources for proper reporting and management of their review
  • Utilize strategies for turning a research question into a searchable question with inclusion/exclusion criteria
  • Identify databases for their review and explain when to use them
  • Practice using an objective, structured method for developing sensitive search strategies required for knowledge synthesis, utilizing controlled vocabulary, textwords and advanced techniques
  • Apply a structured approach to searching in OVID Medline

Expectations of Participants:

  • Join the Quercus site (link will be provided after registration in July)
  • Complete the pre-class survey (in Quercus)
  • Complete the pre-class work (in Quercus)
  • Attend the live class ready to participate in discussions and activities (BB Collaborate)
