Systematic Scoping Reviews Megan O’Brien, PhD, MPH Glen White, PhD Amalia Monroe-Gulick, MLS Dot Nary, PhD Sasha Li, BA Advisory Panel: Jana Peterson, PhD, MPH, Jean Ann Summers, PhD, John Westbrook, PhD, Marsha Katz, MSEd, and Tom Seekins, PhD
Systematic Scoping Reviews – Why? “It is important not only that we know what we know, but that we know what we do not know” – (Lao-Tze, Chinese Philosopher) Information overload Identify areas of uncertainty Identify areas where new research is needed Systematic and rigorous – reduce bias, cherry picking to make a case
SSR compared to SR Familiar with “systematic reviews” – Campbell and Cochrane Collaborations Meta-analyses Purpose: – Effectiveness of specific intervention Parent Training for Intellectually Disabled Parents – Influence of a specific variable on an outcomes Vitamin C on the common cold
SSR Compared to SR Systematic Scoping Review Systematic Review Original Research
SSR –Disparities in Clinical Preventive Service Utilization Key question: – What English-language studies, conducted in the U.S. and presenting original analyses, have been published in the peer- reviewed literature from 2000 – 2009 that examine clinical preventive service use disparities among subgroups of people with disabilities ages 18-64? SSR2 extension added years 2010-2011 to keep current
Implications Lack of CPSs among people with disabilities is established. Clinicians and advocates must be familiar with CPSs and disparities in utilization. Research tends to focus on certain CPS. Need for research on other CPS and disparities in utilization within the population
SSR – Risk Factors for Institutionalization Key question: – What peer-reviewed, English-language studies that include working age (18-64 years) U.S. population have been published from 2001 – 2011 that focus on risk factors for institutionalization (i.e., nursing homes, group homes and similar congregate living facilities) among people with disabilities ages 18-64?
Results and Lessons Learned So far Mostly psychiatric Defining terms: institutionalization Using “pre-screen” Studies not designed to identify risk factors Importance of the librarian
Importance of a Librarian Embedded librarianship integrates librarians into university research missions. Contribute to knowledge creation using specialized knowledge and skills – Literature searching Translate operational definitions of concepts/topics into robust search strategies – Database context, searching features (keywords, MESH terms, wildcard operators). – Interface upgrades, database platforms change over time – Selecting most appropriate database
Implications Great need for studies in this area SSRs require an embedded librarian approach – not just support
