Transcript of Clinical Reasoning Library Workshop

Clinical Reasoning
Carrie Salazar, eLearning and Instruction Librarian
Finding information on the
Condition

Google?
Wikipedia?
Start at the NECO Library
neco.edu/library
Then to go EyeGuides for helpful optometry resources.
To find information on the patient's disease, these are some helpful eBooks.
Wills Eye Manual
Duane's Clinical Ophthalmology
Finding Books and eBooks
Activity
Find the
etiology (causes)
of your patient's disease using the library's catalog.
Finding
Evidence Based Medicine
on the Condition

Google doesn't automatically filter the reliable sources.
Google is commercially used to advertise.
Wiki isn't a primary source.
Anyone with a Wikipedia account can edit information.
EyeGuides are research guides specific to optometry resources.
Once you open Wills Eye Manual, you can search for your patient's condition.
To find books and eBooks, go back to the library home page and type your patient's condition into the
'quick catalog search.'
The search will include only NECO's holdings.
To limit your search to only eBooks, go to the right filter box and choose
E-Resources.
There's an EyeGuide for your Clinical Reasoning Project.
Once you've found the eBook you want to read, just click on
NECO
to gain access.
There are a few access points to get to eJournals and databases.
PubMed
Use the filter sidebar to help you narrow your search.
Scopus
The databases automatically link to NECO, and will let you know if the article is in our collection.
Activity
Find a peer reviewed article related to your patient's condition. Don't forget to use the Boolean technique to help narrow or broaden your results.
Clinical Trials
You have a few sources to find clinical trials
PubMed

Clinicaltrials.gov

Cochrane Library
PubMed Clinical Queries
Cochrane Library
Cochrane is limited to one user at a time. Don't become frustrated if you can't log-in.
Activity
Go to
PubMed Clinical Queries
and search for your patient's condition.
Community and Practice Guidelines
Resources for Clinicians
If you go to the
Practice Guidelines
There's a list of American Optometric Association reference guides to some conditions.
Community and Patient Education
On the Resources for Clinicians guide, there's a page for
Other helpful tips
Remember: not all information sources are created equal
Be
critical
of where your information is coming from.
Ask yourself:
Who
wrote this?
Are they qualified?
Could they have a hidden agenda?
For what
purpose
was it written?
Who is the intended
audience
?
The bottom line: you need to make sure
your source is
reliable.
Poor, inadequate, and/or unreliable information could
put your patients' health at risk!
Some reliable online searches
If you find yourself using Google look for these types of resources:
Government .gov
Education/University .edu
Organizations .org
Please use your
NECOID
and the password
Student2017!
when you are off-campus and need to access Library resources.
What is Evidence Based Medicine?
Source: Florida State University Evidence-Based Medicine Tutorial http://med.fsu.edu/index.cfm?page=medicalinformatics.ebmTutorial
Types of Evidence:
• Clinical Trials
• Observational Studies:
Case Reports
Case Series
Cross-Sectional Studies
Case-Controlled Studies
Cohort
Registry Studies
Qualitative Studies
Etc.
Journals and Databases
VisionCite
VisionCite is a periodical citation index by the Illinois College of Optometry Library.
Boolean Searching
Boolean Searching
is a fancy term for using conjunctions such as
AND, OR, and NOT
to eliminate the results you don't want.
AND
Purple
= all the results with terms CATARACTS and GLAUCOMA.
AND
narrows a search, resulting in fewer hits.
OR
Teal
= all the results with either just cataracts, just glaucoma, or cataracts AND glaucoma.
OR
broadens a search, resulting in more hits.
NOT
Pink
= all the results with cataracts and excluding glaucoma.
NOT
excludes terms that you do not want to include
parentheses
You can use parentheses for an even more precise search.
This search will include all terms
[cataract and retina] and [glaucoma and retina]
Truncation
Truncating: adding an asterisk (*) at the end of a word stem will retrieve all words that begin with that stem.
This search will retrieve results with:
optometry
optometrist
optometer
optokinetic
optophone
optotype
etc.
Resources for Clinicians
eyeguide, you'll
find information on patient education and practice guidelines.
You'll find information on symptoms, risk factors and treatment.
citations
Cite your sources!
If you don't properly cite the sources you use -- including books, online resources, charts, photos, etc. -- it's considered plagiarism.
