Searching for the Evidence

Learn to use databases and tools available to locate methodologically sound and clinically relevant journal articles. Practice using resources such as PubMed and Embase, and explore available limits and filters.  At least one month of searching experience is advised as a prerequisite to this class.

Learning objectives

  1. Formulate a clinical question using the PICO format.
  2. Construct a database search strategy using a combination of text words and indexing terms. 
  3. Recognize the hierarchical nature of evidence, represented by the level of evidence pyramid. 
  4. Search databases such as PubMed and Embase, using filters when appropriate to limit to study designs that best answer the question.
