    • From Topic to Results
      • Topic -> question -> keywords/synonyms
      Effect of chocolate in prevention of heart disease ...”Is consuming chocolate effective in reducing risk of heart disease?” …. Themes / PICO ………………… keywords???.... synonyms???........................
      • Is consuming chocolate effective in reducing the risk of heart disease?
      • P –problem / patient?
        • I – Intervention?
        • C – Comparison?
        • O – Outcome?
        • Synonyms?
      From Topic to Results
      • Is consuming chocolate effective in reducing the risk of heart disease?
      • P – heart disease
      • I – chocolate
      • C –
      • O – prevention
      From Topic to Results
      • Is consuming chocolate effective in reducing the risk of heart disease?
      • P – heart disease / heart failure / cardiovascular disease / coronary disease
      • I – chocolate / cocoa / cacao
      • C –
      • O – reducing risk / prevention /
      From Topic to Results
    • Quiz 1
      • Which will give you most hits (a more SENSITIVE search)
        • coronary disease AND heart failure
        • coronary disease OR heart failure
        • coronary disease NOT heart failure
    • From Topic to Results: Boolean Logic
      • OR – to broaden your search, by combining similar terms
      • eg
      • “ exercise” or “physical activity”
      • Either term can be present in the resulting set of articles.
      Cerebral-vascular Accident Stroke
    • Quiz 2
      • Which will give you better hits (a more SPECIFIC search)?
        • coronary disease AND chocolate
        • chocolate OR heart failure
        • coronary disease NOT chocolate
        • risk AND chocolate
      • AND – to narrow the search by combining different topics
        • eg
          • “ physiotherapy” and “stroke”

      • chocolate AND risk AND coronary failure
      • risk AND (chocolate OR cocoa) AND (coronary disease OR heart failure)
    • From Topic to Results: Boolean Logic
      • NOT – to restrict your search so that it does not contain a particular term

      • “ physical therapy” not “manual therapy”
      • The first, but not the second, term must be present.
      Manual Therapy Physical Therapy

    • Searching – Do’s & Don’ts
      • Do think of alternative ways of talking about your topic
      • Do learn from your hits and your misses
      • Do remember that you still have to critically appraise each article
      • Do ask for help
    •
