Another output from the Horizon 2020 funded KConnect project, this time led by the Vienna University of Technology.  This new system allows us to see what people are looking at based on clinical area.  Below are the top results from three separate clinical areas (based on 2-3 weeks worth of data):

Dentistry

  • Flossing for the management of periodontal diseases and dental caries in adults
  • The efficacy of dental floss in addition to a toothbrush on plaque and parameters of gingival inflammation: a systematic review
  • The Efficacy of Brushing and Flossing Sequence on Control of Plaque and Gingival Inflammation.

Cardiology

  • Management of patients with stroke: rehabilitation, prevention and management of complications, and discharge planning
  • Blood pressure monitoring
  • Chronic Heart Failure – Diagnosis and Management

Mental Health

  • A systematic review of the clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of sensory, psychological and behavioural interventions for managing agitation in older adults with dementia
  • Comorbidity of mental disorders and substance use
  • Evidence based guidelines for the pharmacological management of substance abuse, harmful use, addiction and comorbidity

This data is important as it indicates what clinicians are looking for; it indicates what clinician’s uncertainties are.  Often people plan new research, reviews or educational products based on assumptions.  With this data it can be more evidence-based!

One graphic to finish with.  Take the data for cardiology (not just the top three) and transform it to a tag-cloud:
