Create Your Own Heart Failure PubMed Search

If your topic of interest is not available as a Heart Failure PubMed Search, use the instructions provided to create your own search. Your specific topic search (eg, nurse's role) can then be combined with the CareSearch Heart Failure Search Filter to limit the search results to a heart failure context. 

Follow the instructions below to create your own search.


Let's use the example of 'the nurse's role' in heart failure care.


Step 1:  Click on this link: Run the Heart Failure Search Filter in PubMed now
Step 2:  CLEAR the PubMed search box
Step 3:  Enter your topic search, ie, nurse's role, and select Search
Step 4:  Click on the Advanced search link
Step 5:  Identify the 'set numbers' for the searches run in Steps 1 and 3 (eg, #1 AND #2)
Step 6:  Click on Add  in the "Add to builder" column of  your chosen searches to add them to the builder.
Step 7:  Select AND when to get literature with both these topic in it . Now press the Search button.

Results will include references that are about the nurse's role, restricted to the heart failure context. Substitute your own search terms in Step 3 to create your own PubMed Search.

Having trouble?

Make sure that you type your search terms in the PubMed 'search' box, and not the CareSearch 'search' box. This mistake could happen if you forget to click on 'Run the Heart Failure Search Filter in PubMed now' step in these instructions.
