Models of rapid synthesis – Australian Aboriginal health search portal

LIt.search

This project developed a health search filter that enables the user to search the worldwide PubMed database and confine their search to articles about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health. With one click, the tool provides access to all available literature in this field and to 27 predefined search topics.

Led by a research team from Flinders University, this project drew on the input and advice of a Reference Group of health providers, researchers, academics and students.

The research also provided a supplementary guide on how to search for Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health literature in other bibliographic databases and on the web: http://www.lowitja.org.au/searching-other-databases-and-web.
