The image above offers a visual description of what we do when we transform our concept table into a search strategy.
(all words related to Concept 1), (all words related to Concept 2), (all words related to Concept 3)
(Synonym OR Related term)
(Concept 1 Synonym OR Related term)
(Concept 2 Synonym OR Related term)
(Concept 3 Synonym OR Related term)
Tip: use double quotation marks (" ") around search terms of more than one word. So, instead of searching for nursing personnel, search for "nursing personnel". This commands the database to keep your words together as a single unit.
In the database, it looks like this:
(Nurse OR Nurses OR "Nursing personnel") AND ("Health literacy") AND (Rural OR "Rural areas" OR "Rural health centers" OR "Rural population" OR "Rural populations" OR "Rural health nursing" OR "Underserved populations")
