Checklist for Psychiatry department presentations
In addition to steps from your department or mentor:
Clarify your topic and searchable question
Confirm your presentation date
Identify a mentor or peer reviewer. Meet with a librarian as needed.
Do a search for 1) systematic reviews or meta-analyses in Cochrane, Campbell, PsycINFO, PubMed, and 2) primary literature from the date cutoffs from the systematic review. Save your search strategies!
Use a citation management software to organize your articles and citations from both peer-reviewed journal databases and other resources.
Critically appraise the articles you find that look most relevant to your question, if these are individual research articles (vs. a systematic review where someone else has already synthesized the information).
Look at additional resources relevant to your topic such as professional organization guidelines, white papers or epidemiological reports to provide background data for your topic.
