  1. Based on the answerable question, identify keywords, search terms and alternative words that you will then use to complete a structured search for evidence.
  2. Identify the best two (2) databases that you would use to search for evidence related to the clinical question.

  5. The table should demonstrate the use of a variety of search strategies (example Boolean operators, truncation, wildcard, limiters).
