Information regarding accessing the webinar will be shared with registrants prior to the event.
Are you struggling with ever-more complicated systematic review searches? Do you have a basic knowledge of Boolean operators, thesaurus terms, and syntax and want to raise your search game? This webinar will give you guidance on creating high-quality searches in a faster way. Bramer and associates have taught his method at several filled-to-capacity annual meeting courses.
By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- identify important elements in the search
- use the published method to create and optimize searches
- use the shared macros to translate searches between databases
Participants should have basic knowledge of databases (boolean operators, thesaurus terms and syntax).
