Embase for Clinical Point-of-Care Searching

Embase is a comprehensive biomedical database which includes advanced search tools for finding clinical information quickly at the point of care. During this brief class participants will learn how to use Embase’s PICO search, a tool which provides search boxes formatted to utilize synonyms, controlled vocabulary, and Boolean in the PICO(T) format, easily producing relevant results. By the end of the class participants will:

  • Practice using the PICO framework to search for biomedical information based on real-life clinical scenarios.
  • Implement effective search strategies to be used at the bedside in real time to inform patient care decisions.
