Work Description

Title: The ethical and professional use of social media in surgery - A review of the literature Open Access Deposited
Attribute Value
  • Comprehensive literature searches were run in Ovid MEDLINE, Ovid MEDLINE In-Process & Other Non-Indexed Citations, Ovid MEDLINE Epub Ahead of Print,, and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials in January 2017. All citations were exported to Endnote. Duplicate citations were removed in Endnote using both automated and manual processes. Five pre-identified key articles were used to generate relevant search terms and to test the effectiveness of the searches. Once all citations were collected and duplicates removed, the citations were added to DistillerSR for eligibility screening. Two screening forms were created. The first pertained to a title and abstract screen, and the second to a full-text screen of those that passed the first stage. The criteria used to determine eligibility is included. Two reviewers screened all citations during both stages of the review independently. Disagreements were resolved through discussion.
  • The dataset includes the reproducible search strategies for all literature databases searched during the review, the key articles used to generate relevant search terms and test the effectiveness of the searches, the Endnote library that has all citations considered for inclusion, a flow chart describing the screening process, and the screening forms used for inclusion and exclusion.
