Searching for Evidence using the Medline database
Thursday, July 28th, 2022 at 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
This 1.5 hour webinar will be led by Chloe Turner, the new Primary Care Librarian for Derbyshire. The session will give you an opportunity to learn how to design an effective search strategy from your research question. We can use a standard question, or a pre-submitted one, if someone wants to submit one in advance. Learn how to find authoritative healthcare research effectively and efficiently, to support patient care, service improvement, research, professional development and coursework, with a focus on the Medline database.
