Search Strategies Nuts & Bolts Break down question into keywords Break down question into keywords If you search by a whole PICO question, your results will be overwhelming or nothing If you search by a whole PICO question, your results will be overwhelming or nothing Think LOGIC If A, then B, NOT C = D Think LOGIC If A, then B, NOT C = D Boolean Logic Boolean Logic
EBSCO / CINAHL SEARCHING P I C O Most journal articles are written based on the PICO research question
Templates for Asking PICO Question Patient population/disease The patient population or disease of interest, for example: Age Age Gender Gender Ethnicity Ethnicity With certain disorder (e.g., hepatitis) With certain disorder (e.g., hepatitis) Intervention or issue of interest The intervention or range of interventions of interest, for example: Therapy Therapy Exposure to disease Exposure to disease Prognosis factor A Prognosis factor A Risk behavior (e.g., smoking) Risk behavior (e.g., smoking) Comparison intervention or issue of interest What you want to compare the intervention against, for example: Alternative therapy, placebo, or no intervention/therapy Alternative therapy, placebo, or no intervention/therapy No disease No disease Placebo factor B Placebo factor B Absence of risk factor (e.g., non-smoking) Absence of risk factor (e.g., non-smoking) Outcome Outcome of interest, for example: Outcome expected from therapy (e.g. pressure ulcers) Outcome expected from therapy (e.g. pressure ulcers) Risk of disease Risk of disease Accuracy of diagnosis Accuracy of diagnosis Rate of occurrence of adverse outcome (e.g., death) Rate of occurrence of adverse outcome (e.g., death) Time The time involved to demonstrate an outcome, for example: Time The time involved to demonstrate an outcome, for example: The time it takes for the intervention to achieve the outcome The time it takes for the intervention to achieve the outcome The time over which populations are observed for the outcome (e.g. quality of life) to occur, given a certain condition (e.g., prostate cancer) The time over which populations are observed for the outcome (e.g. quality of life) to occur, given a certain condition (e.g., prostate cancer) (Nollan, & Fineout-Overholt, 2005, p. 30)
B efore starting a search, write down the answers to these PICO questions. The key elements in the answers will become search terms in your on-line search and the additional information will help you when analyzing the studies you find. It often helps to form these elements in the form of a question: AMONG 50-year old women with a family history of breast cancer DOES hormone replacement therapy AS COMPARED TO placebo reduce the risk of Alzheimer's Disease? (The Medical Research Library of Brooklyn, 2009b) PICO PPatient or populationDescribes patient (age, sex, race, past medical history, etc.) A 50 year old woman with a family history of breast cancer IInterventionWhat happens or is to be done; treatment, diagnostic test, exposure, screening Hormone replacement therapy CComparisonCompared to what? Nothing, placebo, gold standard, another intervention Placebo OOutcomes (preferably clinical)What is the effect of the intervention? (Be specific: mortality after a particular time period, hospitalizations). Prevention of Alzheimer's Disease

Overview The Office of Research on Women's Health (ORWH) serves as a focal point for women's health research at the NIH. The ORWH promotes, stimulates, and supports efforts to improve the health of women through biomedical and behavioral research on the roles of sex (biological characteristics of being female or male) and gender (social influences based on sex) in health and disease. ORWH works in partnership with the NIH institutes and centers to ensure that women's health research is part of the scientific framework at NIH and throughout the scientific community.
