2 Objectives At the end of lecture, you will be able to Find an article quickly Develop search strategies and conduct efficient PubMed searches Select appropriate databases Identify MeSH(s) and use MeSH(s) to run PubMed searches Use subheadings, major concepts and limit options to refine searches Save searches and set up an automatic updates Conduct simple searches in CINAHL, PsycINFO, SocAbstracts

5 Quick Way to Find an Article in PubMed - 1 Enter the PMID number. Reed PG. The dialogue within nursing theory-guided practice: a frontier of knowledge and development. Reed PG. Nurs Sci Q. 2006 Oct;19(4):328-9. PMID: 17034071 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]

9 Developing Search Strategies Formulate a question. Break your question into multiple concepts. Locate the appropriate MeSH (indexed term) for each concept. Run the search using AND, OR, NOT Apply limit options (date, language, age, publication type, gender), major headings and subheadings Modify your search strategies and rerun your search.
10 Boolean Operators (upper case) AND Combine different concepts to narrow your search. aged AND women aged women OR Broaden your search to include similar concepts. HIV OR AIDS AIDS patients NOT Exclude a concept AIDS NOT hearing aids AIDS patients
11 Why Use MeSH (Indexed Term)? MeSH terms (indexed terms) are an efficient way to find articles on “concepts” where authors may use different words to discuss the same ideas. Using MeSH improves precision and accuracy of subject searching. Keyword search (title, MeSH, abstract) may not retrieve relevant articles. Example: physical therapy “Storytelling as therapy: implications for medicine.” Abstract: Storytelling is an art developed during the beginning of human history, probably to teach the wisdom of generations past, including basic mental and physical health principles…
12 When to use Keyword search? New studies not yet indexed e.g. PubMed – in process PubMed – as supplied by publisher Do a keyword search and limit search results for the past one year. search sample: Obesity policy
13 Locating MeSH Do a keyword search. Click on “Details” to see the assigned MeSH. OR Do a title word search e.g. nursing theory [ti] Display citations in Citation format to locate MeSH OR Search the MeSH database 1. Scope Note 2. Subheadings 3. Major Topics 4. Explode
14 MyNCBI (Save Search, Updates) Create a free MyNCBI account Save search strategies Set user preferences – highlight search words in your retrieval.
15 Search Exercises 1.Nurses’ job satisfaction 2.Nursing recruitment/retention 3.Patient safety 4.Prevention of burnout among nurses aids who work in long term care setting 5.Health care access for Asian Americans
