A search strategy to identify studies on the prognosis of work disability: a diagnostic test framework.

Kok R, Verbeek JA, Faber B, van Dijk FJ, Hoving JL - BMJ Open (2015)

Bottom Line: Both the research and the practice search filter outperformed existing filters in occupational health, all combined with the Yale-prognostic filter.The Work Disability Prognosis filter for Research showed a comprehensiveness of 90% (95% CI 86 to 94) and efficiency expressed more user-friendly as Number Needed to Read=20 (95% CI 17 to 34).However, further refining of this filter is possible and needed, especially for the practitioner for whom efficiency is especially important.
