1 Why is public health literature so difficult to find? Ruth Turley SURE/DECIPHer, Cardiff University September 2014

2 Content 1. Searching goals and good practice 2. Why is public health more difficult? 3. What does this mean for public health review authors?

3 Searching goal Capture all relevant evidence with the least amount of noise

4 Good practice Build search terms PICO - population, intervention, comparison, outcome use synonyms, spellings Search several databases e.g. Pubmed, Medline, Embase, Psycinfo Search journals by hand Contact experts

5 Esu et al sources searched including grey literature and hand searching 77 records found and screened 18 included. 24% relevance

6 So...what makes public health so tricky?

7 1. Review scope

8 E.g. Improving Fruit & veg consumption

9 2. Terminology Lack of standard terminology Different disciplines, countries etc. can describe the same thing in different ways

10 E.g. Slum settings Slum, shanty, shantyhouse, barrio, favela, kampung, tugurio, ghetto, bidon, bidonville, informal shack, irregular shack, illegal shack, shack dweller, squatter camp, habitat precaire, habitat spontane, quartier irregulier, asentamiento irregular, colonia popular, villa miseria, ciudad perdida, edina achouaia, mudal safi, pelli gewal, lahbach, elendsviertel, brarek, foundouks, tanake, aashwa, truschobi, taudis, morro, loteamento, comunidade, ahata, katra, watta, jhopadpatti, umjondolo, mabanda, kijiji, barraca, conventillos

11 3. Type of evidence Not just RCTs! Thus larger amount of research to sift through and need detailed search strategy for study designs

12 4. Where evidence is stored Widely scattered Discipline-specific databases May be published in a journal that is not indexed in databases May not be published!

13 What does all this mean for a public health review author? Very complex database search strategies to achieve sensitivity and specificity E.g. Baker et al Community wide interventions to promote physical activity

17 What does all this mean for a public health review author? Very complex database search strategies to achieve sensitivity and specificity Need to adapt search in many databases (well maybe) Expect thousands of search results to screen!

18 E.g. Thomson et al Housing improvements for health and socioeconomic outcomes 27 bibliographic databases, 12 grey literature databases, 23 websites plus handsearching, experts etc. 59,248 references screened. 336 potentially relevant looked at in full-text 39 studies included. 0.5% relevant!!

19 Conclusions Systematic searching for upstream public health evidence can be tricky! Teams need time and skills to manage it Are there smarter ways to identify relevant research?
