What are PubMed Topic Searches? This event is part of the Quality Use of CareSearch Project
PubMed Topic Searches provide an easy and reliable way to find the relevant palliative care literature –There are over 50 PubMed topics related to palliative care that are ready for use at the press of a button –And if the topic you are interested in is not listed you can easily design your own – this power point shows you how PubMed Topic Searches
These topic based searches enable users to link through to the PubMed database and run a real time automated search This means that each time the search is run it will include the new items being entered on the PubMed database ( ie, always current) PubMed is a free, publicly available database. PubMed Topic Searches
The palliative care literature is sometimes hard to find The PubMed Topic Searches use a palliative care filter designed by the CareSearch team to find the most relevant information, and to filter out less relevant results The palliative care filter has been validated in a number of studies PubMed Topic Searches
All materials on the website are developed and peer reviewed by Australian health professionals to ensure: –that they relate to palliative care –that they are trustworthy and reflect the best available evidence –that where possible the evidence relates to rigorous research work. Quality processes
