5 Clinical effectiveness of Herceptin for breast cancer search using Ovid ‘Additional Limits – Clinical Queries’ Adverse events data for a cost effectiveness model could include side effects of the health intervention, complications, treatment failure and safety issues. Estimates of cost effectiveness could be biased if data for costs, incidence and consequences of adverse events are absent (Heather et al. 2014). Adverse events may be reported in the trial and systematic reviews that contribute clinical outcomes.

The PICO tool outlines the four elements of a well designed effectiveness question. P is the patient problem or population, I the intervention, C the comparison and O the outcome (Sackett et al. 1997). In the example search here, P is elderly people with hearing impairment, I is hearing aid, C is unknown and O is improved hearing. We can include a further study type concept of ‘economic evaluations’. Some search concepts may have search filters (ready-made searches) available for use. These can be applied to the search instead of developing a particular search concept.
