How do I do this?
The PICO formula might help.
The PICO process is used to frame (and answer) a clinical or health care related question. PICO is also used to develop search strategies for literature reviews.
P patient, problem or population
C comparison, control or comparator
This is my research topic:
The use of telehealth to support the self-management of asthma in rural or regional communities
This is my PICO:
Population: asthma patients in rural or regional communities
Intervention: telehealth or telemedicine
Outcome: effective management and control of asthma in rural and regional communities
Use the research topic (or clinical question) to build a search strategy.
|asthma OR wheezing||AND||telehealth OR telemedicine||AND||rural OR regional OR remote|
Use PubVenn to visualise your PubMed search strategy.
Consider using Text Mining to assist with search strategy development
Text mining tools can also be used to identify relevant search terms that can be used in a search strategy.
