Q

I am a 3rd-year PA student, and I need to do a systematic review.

The subject of my review is pharmacological treatment options for a specific headache condition. I know that I need to gather random controlled trials from PubMed, but I have not done a systematic review before. My professor suggested that I contact the library for help.

I would like to get started in the next week or two. My project is due at the end of spring.

Hi-

This is Chris Wieman, the librarian who you spoke with yesterday afternoon.  Below you will find a link to the Q&A page that I mentioned on the phone.  In this page, my colleague discusses the basics of a systematic review, and also points to a 2011  article that discusses the process in greater detail.  I encourage you to read the Q&A page and the article.

I hope this helps you get started on this project!  Let us know if you would like to set up an appointment with a librarian to work on a search strategy for your systematic review.
