Sample searches

We are sorry to announce that some of the videos in this module may not play completely. As we do not have possession of the original video files we may not be able to repair them.

Here are three sample searches for you to work through. Each step of the search process is explained, as are the search progresses. The databases used are:

  1. PubMed
  2. PubMed Clinical Queries
  3. The Cochrane Library

Run these saved searches, and then try and replicate them yourself in the relevant database. Remember you can seek help from your local NHS Librarian if you need further support, or help using other databases.
