Presenter: Christopher Schoell, OT, OTD, CHT
Format: 45 minutes presentation. 15 minutes Q&A
The implementation of Evidence-Based Practice continues to be a challenge for many therapists. The reasons given for this are many: the lack of time perceived to be needed to perform a literature search, apprehension to perform a search due to the lack of knowhow, and limited access to databases to perform a literature search. This presentation demonstrates how therapists can easily overcome these obstacles and provides the information necessary so that any therapist can perform a basic literature search quickly and easily.
Upon completion of this webinar participants will:
- Be able to conduct a basic literature search using the free Google Scholar and Medline databases.
- Understand the advantages/disadvantages to using each of these databases for literature searches.
- Be able to formulate a specific PICO question to assist in narrowing the scope of a literature search.
- Have a basic understanding of the tools/terms used in searching each of these databases.
- Be able to obtain a number of full text articles through a variety sources as well as to obtain alerts when articles on a specific subject of interest are published.
