EBM: Tufts Hirsh Library’s EBM + MeSH Page
August 17, 2007
Posted by on
Librarians at Tufts University Hirsh Health Sciences Library have posted a highly-usable page entitled “Useful MeSH for Evidence Based Medicine” for searchers using Medline/PubMed.
There are 80+ clinical “Subheadings” which can be combined for use with MeSH terms… such as etiology, pathology, adverse effects, trends, surgery, mortality, etiology and so on. A searcher can also choose to “explode” groups of subheadings in order to garner specific search results on a disease or treatment.
On the Tufts page, formatted search links are shown which allow one to (for example) explode Mass Screening… http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/entrez?db=MeSH&term=Mass%20Screening
Please add these types of professional search tools to your next search on PubMed! And thanks, Tufts librarians!
