Both students and faculty in the health sciences are increasingly conducting some type of evidence synthesis project:
Undergraduate through doctoral nursing students have “PICO” projects,
PhD candidates are writing “integrative reviews,”
DPT student teams are conducting “systematic reviews,”
OTD students are conducting evidence synthesis literature reviews for their portfolios.
Faculty are embarking on scoping reviews, integrative reviews, and systematic reviews
Has your professor has assigned one of the following?
-a PICO project (or PICOT, PICOC, etc?)
-Systematic literature review
-Systematic Review of randomized controlled trials?
There are more review types apropos of research questions. The review methodology selected usually depends upon the results of an initial “scoping search” of the literature, to determine the state of the science, the breadth and depth of a topic area, or perhaps a gap in the literature.
To get started with a review, begin with a birds’-eye view of the Steps, Tools, and Examples listed in this library Research Guide.
Bring your PICO question and preliminary results (a few relevant studies) as you scope the literature for evidence.
Librarians will be available to assist in refining your strategy, considering other databases,
One rep for a group should RSVP and add additional number of attendees:
NYU Libraries has arranged TRIAL access to Sociometrics EBP Evidence Based Programs and Capacity-Building Tools through January 15, 2018.

BMJ Best Practice is a new concept for information delivered at the point of care. In a single source there is a combination of the latest research evidence, guidelines and expert opinion – presented in a step-by-step approach, covering prevention, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis. Best Practice provides a second opinion without the need for checking multiple resources. Its patient-focused approach represents an advancement in information delivery at the point of care.
Through our library subscriptions, you have access to a variety of video streaming options, from complex surgery techniques to counseling and rehabilitation therapy videos. These video streaming options are great for supplementing learning that occurs in simulations, clinical rotations, and the classroom.
Through this link, access 15 different streaming tools that focus on specific health science topics!
