Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender

A search for articles focusing major attention on LGBT issues. (I wish MeSH included a transgender subject heading.)

("Homosexuality"[MAJR] OR "Bisexuality"[MAJR] OR "Transvestism"[MAJR] OR MSM[ti] OR “men who have sex with men”[ti] OR LBGT[ti] OR LGBT[ti] OR lesbian*[ti] OR gay[ti] OR gays[ti] OR homosexual*[ti] OR homo-sexual*[ti] OR bisexual*[ti] OR bi-sexual*[ti] OR transgender*[ti] OR trans-gender*[ti] OR homophob*[ti] OR homo-phob*[ti] OR transphobi*[ti] OR trans-phob*[ti] )

Steroids -- keyword and MeSH strategy

This search statement was produced by ORing together several steroid MeSH headings and the keywords corresponding to steroids/steroid/steroidal and all the narrower headings under "steroids"[mesh] as keywords. At least I tried to include all of the narrower headings -- can't guarantee that I was successful.

conflict of interest -- mesh and keyword search

Jeannine Cyr Gluck, MLS, AHIP generously contributed the following search statement which is designed to achieve a good balance between retrieval of relevant records and exclusion of irrelevant records.

conflict of interest[mh] OR "conflict of interest"[tiab] OR "conflicts of interest"[tiab] OR "conflict of interests"[tiab] OR "conflicting interest"[tiab] OR "conflicting interests"[tiab] OR "competing interest"[tiab] OR "competing interests"[tiab] OR “financial conflict”[tiab] OR “financial conflicts”[tiab] OR “commercial conflicts”[tiab] OR ((“conflict”[tiab] OR “conflicts”[tiab] OR funding[tiab] OR financial[ti]) AND (“disclosure”[tiab] OR “disclosures”[tiab] OR “disclose”[tiab] OR “disclosed”[tiab]))


The [ti] tag rather than a [tiab] tag is used with "financial" to eliminate retrieval of many irrelevant abstracts which ended with a statement of the author's financial disclosures.

healthcare utilization -- keywords and mesh

The terms below represent the utilization concept only. I'm sure there are other important terms. This is a place to start.

keywords
((prevent*[tiab] AND (healthcare OR care)) OR screening[tiab] OR screen[tiab] OR screened[tiab] OR screens[tiab] OR utilization[tiab] OR utilisation[tiab] OR refuse[tiab] OR refusing[tiab] OR refused[tiab] OR refusal[tiab] OR refuses[tiab] OR drop-out*[tiab] OR dropout*[tiab] OR uptake[tiab] OR participat*[tiab] OR abscond*[tiab])


MeSH
("Patient Acceptance of Health Care"[Mesh] OR "Mass Screening"[Mesh] OR "Patient Dropouts"[Mesh])

NSAIDs -- keywords

Depending on the search, aspirin terms may need to be included in the search.  Also, including trade, scientific, and investigational names for each drug may be important in some cases.
 
(Nonsteroidal OR ((cyclo-oxygenase OR cyclooxygenase OR cox[tiab] OR cox-1 OR cox-2 OR cox1 OR cox2 ) AND inhibitor*) OR NSAID* OR Benoxaprofen* OR Carprofen OR Fenbufen OR Fenoprofen OR Flurbiprofen OR Ibuprofen OR Indoprofen OR Ketoprofen OR Ketorolac OR Loxoprofen OR Oxaprozin OR Pirprofen OR Suprofen* OR Tiaprofenic OR Aceclofenac OR Acemetacin OR Bromfenac OR Diclofenac OR Etodolac OR Indomethacin OR Nabumetone OR Sulindac OR Sulindac OR Tolmetin OR Zomepirac OR Floctafenine OR Flufenamic OR Meclofenamate OR Mefenamic OR Isoxicam OR Lornoxicam OR Meloxicam OR Piroxicam OR Sudoxicam OR Azapropazone OR Feprazone OR Oxyphenbutazone OR Phenylbutazone)

prevent[tiab] OR prevents OR prevented OR preventing OR prevention[tiab] OR prophylax* OR prophylac* OR chemoprevent* OR thwart* OR "ward off" OR "ward-off" OR pre-emptive* OR preemptive* OR chemoprophyla* OR deter*

Many thanks to Marina Englesakis for suggesting pre-emptive*, preemptive*, and chemoprophyla*

Consider ORing in topic specific prophylaxis terms, e.g. thromboproph*

Consider ORing in the terms -- incidence OR incident -- perhaps in a multipart term --
(reduc* OR diminish* OR decreas* OR minimiz* OR minimis* ) AND (occur* OR inciden* or rate* OR odds OR likelihood OR develop* OR frequenc*)

Consider ORing in MeSH
"Antibiotic Prophylaxis"[mesh] OR "chemoprevention"[mesh] OR "premedication"[mesh] or "prevention and control"[sh]

safety keywords for drug-realated searches -- keywords

Not all of the listed terms are appropriate for all searches. Additional terms will be needed for many searches. For example, osteonecrosis/onj terms would need to be added to a search for the safety/adverse effects of bisphosphonates.

adverse OR "side effect" OR "side effects" OR "sentinel event" OR "sentinel events" OR hypersensitive OR hypersensitivity OR hypersensitivities OR sensitivity OR sensitivities OR allergic OR allergy OR allergies OR allergenic OR drug-induced drug-related OR chemically-induced OR "drug reaction" OR "drug reactions" OR "drug interaction" OR "drug interactions" OR eruption* OR hive OR hives OR urticaria OR urticarial OR exanthem* OR rash OR rashes OR anaphyla* OR SJS[tiab] OR Stevens-Johnson OR "stevens johnson" OR "toxic epidermal necrolysis" OR irritant* OR extravasat* OR safe OR safety OR safely OR teratogen* OR carcinogen* OR epileptogen* OR nephrotoxic* OR hepatotoxic* OR cardiotoxic* OR toxic OR toxicity OR toxicities OR contraindicat* OR biohazard* OR hazard* OR danger OR dangers OR dangerous OR endanger* OR precaution* OR caution* OR "safety glasses" OR "protective clothing" OR gown OR gowns OR gowned OR gloved OR gloves OR respirator OR respirators OR hood OR hoods OR biocontain* OR exposure OR exposures
