Libraries Why use these? (don’t we have Google? ) Libraries: • Google = only 7% available health information: libraries have databases, ejournals, ebooks, networks of contacts for free at point of use resources • Librarians/information specialists - trained to a high level of information retrieval, organisation and knowledge, make contacts, select resources • Best research evidence needed for evidence based practice
Evidence based practice: • a systematic approach to clinical problem solving which allows the integration of the best available research evidence with clinical expertise and patient values. (Sackett DL, Strauss SE, Richardson WS, et al. Evidencebased medicine: how to practice and teach EBM. London: Churchill-Livingstone, 2000) In NHS Constitution under Patient Rights: ‘You have the right to expect local decisions on funding of other drugs and treatments to be made rationally following a proper consideration of the evidence’
Evidence based practice: why? • systematic approach - justifiable • best available research evidence – for the most reliable treatment • clinical expertise – puts research evidence into context with experience • patient values – patients have to agree to treatment before they receive it • promised in NHS Constitution therefore expected • google – only 7% of available health information but everyone (incl patients) goes there – have something better!
Evidence-based patient care Best research evidence
Clinical librarian service • Support evidence-based practice directly on the wards • By finding already existing research to back up patient care • Empowering people to find/appraise research themselves

Searching the databases: PICO P = Patient, population or problem I = Intervention (treatment), prognostic factor or exposure C = Comparison O = Outcome(s) of interest PICO is a guideline to help you structure a search. You do not have to use all the sections.
Example Is aspirin effective in treating heart attack? P = heart attack I = aspirin C = none O = treatment outcome
Searching using subject headings • Each record in the database is indexed under several subject headings • Searching using subject headings will include words with different spellings (eg anesthetics/ anaesthetics) and synonyms (eg postnatal/postpartum) • Searching using subject headings gives a wider coverage of the subject
Searching using free text • Free text is where you just type in the words • Best used for specific things to search for • To search for a phrase use “ …” eg “Loewenstein Occupational Therapy Cognitive Assessment” • To search for variations on a word use * eg. surg* will find ‘surgery’, ‘surgeon’, ‘surgeries’etc. • Do not have to tick ‘Map to thesaurus’ – just click on ‘Search’ • Other processes are exactly the same as with thesaurus/subject headings
Searching your chosen database • Use one database at a time • Remember to put in search terms separately • Each search is a separate search until you combine • Combine with AND or OR
Combining with AND or OR • Or is MORE • Increases the number of results • Use for two terms for the same thing or two similar concepts • AND: • Reduces the number of results • Combines two different terms or concepts
Combining with AND • AND retrieves records in which all your search terms appear Heart attack Viral wheeze Aspirin AND Reduces the number of records Retrieves articles where both the words ‘heart attack’ and ‘aspirin’ appear, where both search terms appear
Combining with OR • OR broadens your search Myocardial infarction OR Heart attack Finds records containing either the words ‘myocardial infarction’ or ‘heart attack’ Increases number of results. OR is MORE!
Combining with NOT • NOT removes all results with the term you do not want in it Anti-platelet therapy Aspirin NOT Reduces number of results.
