1. Search strategies to identify observational studies in MEDLINE and Embase. (PubMed)

Search strategies to identify observational studies in MEDLINE and Embase. Systematic reviews are essential for decision-making. Systematic reviews on observational studies help answer research questions on aetiology, risk, prognosis, and frequency of rare outcomes or complications. However, identifying observational studies as part of systematic reviews efficiently is challenging due to poor and inconsistent indexing in literature databases. Search strategies that include a methodological (...) . The first study used one surgical intervention-focused systematic review thus limiting the generalizability of findings. The second study used four systematic reviews but with less than 100 studies. The external validation was performed only on Specificity Terms Filter from the first study Both studies were published 10 years ago and labelling and indexing of observational studies has changed since then.We found 18 methodological filters across two eligible studies.

2. Protocol: a systematic review of studies developing and/or evaluating search strategies to identify prognosis studies. (PubMed)

Protocol: a systematic review of studies developing and/or evaluating search strategies to identify prognosis studies. Prognosis research is on the rise, its importance recognised because chronic health conditions and diseases are increasingly common and costly. Prognosis systematic reviews are needed to collate and synthesise these research findings, especially to help inform effective clinical decision-making and healthcare policy. A detailed, comprehensive search strategy is central to any (...) systematic review. However, within prognosis research, this is challenging due to poor reporting and inconsistent use of available indexing terms in electronic databases. Whilst many published search filters exist for finding clinical trials, this is not the case for prognosis studies. This systematic review aims to identify and compare existing methodological filters developed and evaluated to identify prognosis studies of any of the three main types: overall prognosis, prognostic factors

3. Efficacy of flattening-filter-free beam in stereotactic body radiation therapy planning and treatment: A systematic review with meta-analysis. (PubMed)

Efficacy of flattening-filter-free beam in stereotactic body radiation therapy planning and treatment: A systematic review with meta-analysis. A linear accelerator with the flattening-filter removed generates a non-uniform dose profile beam. We aimed to analyse and compare plan quality and treatment time between flattened beam (FB) and flattening-filter-free (FFF) beam to assess the efficacy of FFF beam for stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT). The search strategy was based around 3 (...) concepts; radiation therapy, flattening-filter-free and treatment delivery. The years searched were restricted from 2010 to date of review (October 2015). All plan quality comparisons were between FFF and FB plans from the same data sets. We identified 210 potential studies based on the three searched concepts. All articles were screened by two authors for title and abstract and by three authors for full text. Ten studies met the eligibility criteria. Plan quality was evaluated using conformity index

4. Are MEDLINE searches sufficient for systematic reviews and meta-analyses of the diagnostic accuracy of depression screening tools? A review of meta-analyses.

Are MEDLINE searches sufficient for systematic reviews and meta-analyses of the diagnostic accuracy of depression screening tools? A review of meta-analyses. Database searches for studies of diagnostic test accuracy are notoriously difficult to filter, highly resource-intensive, and a potential barrier to quality evidence synthesis. We examined published meta-analyses of depression screening tool accuracy to evaluate the (1) proportion of included primary studies found in any online database (...) in the original meta-analyses that were indexed in MEDLINE; (2) the proportion of patients from MEDLINE-indexed studies; and (3) the proportion of depression cases from studies indexed in MEDLINE.MEDLINE and PsycINFO were searched from January 1, 2005 through October 31, 2014 for meta-analyses in any language on the accuracy of depression screening tools.We identified 16 eligible meta-analyses that included 398 primary study citations, which had been identified via an online database in the original meta

5. Search strategies to identify diagnostic accuracy studies in MEDLINE and EMBASE. (PubMed)

Search strategies to identify diagnostic accuracy studies in MEDLINE and EMBASE. A systematic and extensive search for as many eligible studies as possible is essential in any systematic review. When searching for diagnostic test accuracy (DTA) studies in bibliographic databases, it is recommended that terms for disease (target condition) are combined with terms for the diagnostic test (index test). Researchers have developed methodological filters to try to increase the precision (...) of study had a sensitivity above 90% and precision above 10%.None of the current methodological filters designed to identify reports of primary DTA studies in MEDLINE or EMBASE combine sufficiently high sensitivity, required for systematic reviews, with a reasonable degree of precision. This finding supports the current recommendation in the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Diagnostic Test Accuracy that the combination of methodological filter search terms with terms for the index test

6. Prospective comparison of search strategies for systematic reviews: an objective approach yielded higher sensitivity than a conceptual one. (PubMed)

Prospective comparison of search strategies for systematic reviews: an objective approach yielded higher sensitivity than a conceptual one. In the development of search strategies for systematic reviews, "conceptual approaches" are generally recommended to identify appropriate search terms for those parts of the strategies for which no validated search filters exist. However, "objective approaches" based on search terms identified by text analysis are increasingly being applied.To prospectively (...) compare an objective with a conceptual approach for the development of search strategies.Two different MEDLINE search strategies were developed in parallel for five systematic reviews covering a range of topics and study designs. The Institute for Quality and Efficiency in Health Care (IQWiG) applied an objective approach, and external experts applied a conceptual approach for the same research questions. For each systematic review, the citations retrieved were combined and the overall pool

7. Failure or success of search strategies to identify adverse effects of medical devices: a feasibility study using a systematic review. (PubMed)

Failure or success of search strategies to identify adverse effects of medical devices: a feasibility study using a systematic review. Research has indicated that adverse effects terms are increasingly prevalent in the title, abstract or indexing terms of articles that contain adverse drug effects data in MEDLINE and Embase. However, it is unknown whether adverse effects terms are present in the database records of articles that contain adverse effects data of medical devices, and thus, to what (...) extent the development of an adverse effects search filter for medical devices may be feasible.A case study systematic review of a medical device was selected. The included studies from a systematic review of the safety of recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) for spinal fusion were used in the analysis. For each included study, the corresponding database record on MEDLINE and Embase was assessed to measure the presence or absence of adverse effects terms in the title, abstract

The Effects of Phacoemulsification on Intraocular Pressure and Topical Medication Use in Patients With Glaucoma: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of 3-Year Data. For patients with comorbid cataract and primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), guidance is lacking as to whether cataract extraction and traditional filtering surgery should be performed as a staged or combined procedure. Achieving this guidance requires an evidence-based understanding of the effects of phacoemulsification alone (...) on intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients with POAG. For this reason, a systematic review and meta-analysis was undertaken to synthesize evidence quantifying the effect of phacoemulsification on IOP and the required number of topical glaucoma medications in patients with cataract and POAG.Database searches were last run on August 15, 2016 to identify potentially relevant studies. Identified articles were screened for relevance and meta-analysis was used to compute postoperative mean and percentage reduction

14. Development and testing of a medline search filter for identifying patient and public involvement in health research (PubMed)

. The references were divided into a development set and a test set. Search terms were identified from common words, phrases and synonyms in the development set. These terms were combined as a search strategy for medline via OvidSP, which was then tested for sensitivity against the test set. The resultant search filter was then assessed for sensitivity, specificity and precision using a previously published systematic review.The search filter was found to be highly sensitive 98.5% in initial testing. When (...) tested against results generated by a 'real-life' systematic review, the filter had a specificity of 81%. However, sensitivity dropped to 58%. Adjustments to the population group of terms increased the sensitivity to 73%.The PPI filter designed for medline via OvidSP could aid information specialists and researchers trying to find literature specific to PPI.© 2016 Health Libraries Group.

15. Impact of financial inclusion in low- and middle-income countries: a systematic review of reviews

, as well. Unlike most previous systematic reviews, which focused on microfinance interventions (or sub-sets thereof), we explicitly adopt a broader scope to review any available systematic review and or meta-analysis evidence on financial inclusion as a whole field. Systematic reviews and meta-analyses (in short: meta-studies) have sought to clarify the impacts from financial inclusion on poor people in low- and middle-income countries, based on an array of different underlying studies which include (...) -pronged search strategy that explored 7 bibliographic databases to identify published literature, plus a wide range of institutional websites for published and unpublished literature, and back-referencing from recent systematic reviews to ensure additional sources were identified. In addition, a snowballing approach was adopted and an advisory board plus leading authors working on financial inclusion topics were consulted to ensure that no key studies were missed. We also ran citation searches

Identifying quasi-experimental (QE) studies to inform systematic reviews Dec 20 2014. This article reviews the available evidence and guidance on methods to identify reports of quasi-experimental (QE) studies to inform systematic reviews of health care, public health, international development, education, crime and justice, and social welfare.Research, guidance, and examples of search strategies were identified by searching a range of databases, key guidance documents, selected reviews (...) evidence on where best to search.Searches to identify QE studies should search a range of resources and, until indexing improves, use strategies that focus on the topic rather than the study design. Better definitions, better indexing in databases, prospective registers, and reporting guidance are required to improve the retrieval of QE studies and promote systematic reviews of what works based on the evidence from such studies.Copyright © 2017 Elsevier Inc.

17. Development of search strategies for systematic reviews: validation showed the noninferiority of the objective approach. (PubMed)

Development of search strategies for systematic reviews: validation showed the noninferiority of the objective approach. Different approaches can be adopted for the development of search strategies of systematic reviews. The objective approach draws on already established text analysis methods for developing search filters. Our aim was to determine whether the objective approach for the development of search strategies was noninferior to the conceptual approach commonly used in Cochrane reviews (...) (CRs).We conducted a search for CRs published in the Cochrane Library. The studies included in the CRs were searched for in MEDLINE and represented the total set. We then tested whether references previously removed could be identified via the objective approach. We also reconstructed the original search strategies from the CRs to determine why references could not be identified by the objective approach. As we performed the validation of the search strategies without study filters, we used only

and Wales result in a caution (Ministry of Justice, 2017). In the United States, Puzzanchera and Kang (2008) estimate that a similar number (25%) of youth entering the juvenile justice system are diverted, but much of this is initiated post-charge, rather than by the police officer during the initial interaction with the youth. Departing from, but building on the work of prior reviews, our systematic review and meta- analysis focuses on pre-charge (police-led) diversion prior to the imposition of formal (...) studies identifiable through January 2017 were included. This Campbell systematic review was published in May 2018. Executive summary/Abstract Background Overly punitive responses to youth misconduct may have the unintended consequence of increasing the likelihood of future delinquency; yet, overly lenient responses may fail to serve as a corrective for the misbehavior. Police diversion schemes are a collection of strategies police can apply as an alternative to court processing of youth. Police

. For the selected studies that met the review’s inclusion criteria, data were coded and effect sizes calculated. The analysis explores the interventions’ overall effectiveness and the roles that context, evaluation and programme design and implementation play in moderating impact. Results – A total of 113 eligible impact evaluations were identified, encompassing a unique set of evaluation methods, interventions and geographical coverage. Meta-analysis methods were employed to synthesize the evidence, based (...) to assess factors associated with the magnitude of reported effect size estimates. RESULTS The primary and complementary searches identified 32,117 records, of which a total of 1,141 records were selected for full text screening. The subsequent selection process led to a sample of 113 reports, which were considered to be of adequate content and methodological rigour for inclusion in the meta-analysis. The 113 reports represented 107 interventions. The evidence base spanned 31 countries and covered 55
