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

Audience: Graduate students and faculty engaged in health science research

Date: Friday, June 16, 2017

Time: 1:10pm - 3:00pm

Location: Robarts Library, 4th floor electronic classroom

Note: this course may be taken as part of the Graduate Professional Skills Program.

In this hands-on workshop we will:

  • 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 their question in OVID Medline
Date: Friday, June 23, 2017
Time: 1:10pm - 3:00pm
Location: Robarts Library
Campus: St. George (Downtown) Campus

Part 2: Beyond MEDLINE: Translating Search Strategies for Knowledge Syntheses

Audience: Graduate students and faculty engaged in health science research

Date: Friday, June 23, 2017

Time: 1:10pm - 3:00pm

Location: Robarts Library, 4th floor electronic classroom

Note: this course may be taken as part of the Graduate Professional Skills Program.

In order to minimize bias and base your research on as much evidence as possible, you will have to search more than one journal article database for published literature. A search strategy often has to be revised for different databases and resources to take advantage of the strengths and unique features of each.

Building on the structured approach we practiced in Part 1, in this hands-on workshop students will:

  • Review Medline strategy from Part 1 and prepare it for translation
  • Delve deeper into the advanced features of interfaces and databases which allow for editing and refining a search strategy
  • Identify potential sources for bias in their search and develop strategies to mitigate them
  • Translate and execute structured search strategies using different databases, including OVID Embase, Ebsco CINAHL, and Cochrane Central
  • Prepare database search strategies and compose search methods, such that they can be repeated and to ensure proper reporting
