Keyword searching strategy:  Think before you type to save time

P         are you looking for information on a population or patient or specific problem?

I           are you looking for a method/intervention?

C          are you looking for articles that provide comparisons?

O         what type of outcome/output are you looking for in the articles you need to read?

Keyword selection while searching: ypu may have to use alternative words which authors use like synonyms for example: in stead of techniques use methods or procedure or practice,

  1. Filter search results by:
    • population/patient e.g. athletes versus elderly or children
    • problem e.g. heart rate, athlete speed
    • specific person or place
    • publication year
    • specific method
    • equipment treadmill versus bicycle
    • location urban versus rural or by countries
