Finding the Evidence

Courtesy of SCGH Librarians for the seminar which I attended recently. This is a short video with
Tips on finding evidence via PubMed. I found it quite useful. Using the PICOT technique made a word search more systematic.

Next would be 'which' information source to do the search. Would that be Databases that contains published articles such as PubMed or evidence summaries such as Cochrane Library ; Joanna Briggs? Or would it be Research-specific databases such as ANZ Clinical Trials Registry which contains research-in-process? Or would it be via Web search engines such as Intute UK or Scirus?

Hope you find this useful.
