Transcript

  • 1. Prepared by Cheryl L. Branche, 2012
  • 2. Advantages • • • • The research areas are limited to: clinical categories, systematic reviews and medical genetics. Algorithms are already prepared. You do not have to reinvent the wheel. Filters can be used to display articles on specific topics and clinical categories. This tool is useful in evidence-based medicine queries.
  • 3. Importance  With evidence-based medicine, demands for information about clinical scenarios must be at your fingertips.  Specially developed algorithms or search strategies are built-in to the module so searches can be conducted to be either broad (greater recall) or narrow (greater precision).  The Clinical Queries tool is essential for patient care in today’s knowledge based medical arena.
  • 4. Accessing the Clinical Queries Tool  On the PubMed.gov page you can find Clinical Queries under PubMed Tools.
  • 5. PubMed Clinical Queries Page The PubMed clinical queries page has three columns: 1. Clinical Study Categories; 2. Systematic Reviews; and 3. Medical Genetics. The results of the search done on the clinical queries page are limited to these three research areas.
  • 6. PubMed Clinical Queries Page The PubMed clinical queries page has three columns: 1. Clinical Study Categories; 2. Systematic Reviews; and 3. Medical Genetics. The results of the search done on the clinical queries page are limited to these three research areas.
  • 7. How To Do A Search  To do a search, type in the search term(s). Connect terms with “AND,” a Boolean operator. Click “Search.”
  • 8. Viewing Results  A results page will appear. There are three columns: Clinical Categories, Systematic Reviews and Medical Genetics.
  • 9. Selecting Clinical Studies Categories  There are five clinical studies categories:  Etiology  Diagnosis  Therapy  Prognosis  Clinical Prediction Guides Select a clinical studies category from the drop down menu.
  • 10. Selecting Scope Select scope from the drop down menu.  There are two categories of scope:  Broad – which makes sure you don’t miss any relevant articles – some of which may not be exactly what you want – this is called RECALL.  Narrow – which returns fewer results, but all will closely match your search terms – this is called PRECISION.
  • 11. Selecting Topics from the Medical Genetics Research Area There are seven topics in the drop-down menu: • Diagnosis • Differential Diagnosis • Clinical Description • Management • Genetic Counseling • Molecular Genetics • Genetic Testing Select a topic (or All) from the drop down menu.
  • 12. Getting Results  For example, let us select “Diagnosis” for the clinical study categories, “Narrow “ for scope and “Management” under medical genetics. Each of the three columns displays the first five citations. AND or OR may be used to narrow or broaden your search.
  • 13. What is a Systematic Review?  A systematic review evaluates and synthesizes the results of other studies to summarize the best available research on a specific question. Source: http://www.campbellcollaboration.org/what_is_a_systematic_review/index.php
  • 14. What is a Systematic Review? - 2  If you search selecting this column, the results of your search will display citations for:  Systematic reviews,  Meta-analyses,  Reviews of clinical trials,  Evidence-based medicine studies,  Consensus development conferences, and  Guidelines Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/clinical
  • 15. Searching PubMed Using Clinical Queries-Scenario  A 53-year old female with diabetes and hypertension wants to know how much of a role her mother’s diabetes plays in her own diagnosis of diabetes and how much of a role exercise plays in controlling her blood sugars. As her physician, you want to learn about the systematic reviews that have been published.  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/clinical
  • 16. Searching PubMed Using Clinical Queries Scenario - 2 Type in “diabetes AND exercise, ” without the quotes and click on “Search.”
  • 17. Searching PubMed Using Clinical Queries-3  You can see that the default category under Clinical Study Categories is “Diagnosis”. The default scope is “Broad.” The default topic under Medical Genetics is “All.”
  • 18. Searching PubMed Using Clinical Queries - 4  Let us select “Therapy” from the “Category” drop down menu under “Clinical Study Categories,” “Narrow” under “Scope” and “Management” under “Medical Genetics.” You can see the first three articles in each research area.
  • 19. A Word About Systematic Reviews  What is a systematic review?  A systematic review evaluates and synthesizes the results of other studies to summarize the best available research on a specific question. Source: http://www.campellcollaboration.org/what _is_a_systematic_review/idenx.php
  • 20. Search Strategies  The strategies used to select articles in the clinical study categories were developed by Haynes RB et al. and the Summary of Enhancements for Clinical and Health Services Research Queries for PubMed for Studies may be viewed at:  http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/techbull/jf04/cq_info.html
