My tips for conducting a #SystematicReview - a thread.

1. Have a look whether any systematic review or #metaanalysis has been conducted on your topic before. If so, what (gaps) did they uncover? How did they structure their results? How will your review differ?

2. Have a look at the resources available at @PRISMAStatement, including the checklist and flow diagram (prisma-statement.org/PRISMAStatemen…), and use it to guide your processes.
3. Get in touch with the reference #librarian at your institution, or check out the resources available through any #HigherEducation #library website. They'll have valuable insight into search string development and database best practice.

Paper 1: Nepali Numerical Rating Scale and Global Rating of Change! bit.ly/2JdysnJ Image

Paper 3: Clinimetric properties of the Nepali version of the Pain Catastrophizing Scale (PCS). We found a 2 factor structure for the Nepali PCS. The scale is reliable and valid. @DovePress

This morning we have a talk from Emma Nicklin who is undertaking a PhD project in @LeedsMedHealth looking at the supportive care needs of TYA brain tumour survivors and their care givers - the famous @Leeds_Childrens PaedOnc Breakfast Meeting
The prior work of the entire world has been summarised in a #SystematicReview onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.100…

Here's a thread on what's very wrong about using only Google Scholar for a literature view, as done by Buribalova et al. in this recent review: onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.11… #SystematicReview #EvidenceSynthesis
Problem 1: Their search string is flawed. The authors say they used a 'systematic' search for articles on Google Scholar. However, their search will not work as intended because:
a) GS doesn't support Boolean operators (AND, OR, NOT); b) you cannot nest more than one substring (bracketed set of synonyms) in a search; c) they have not nested geographical synonyms within brackets...
