Table 3 Search terms for phase 2

From: Interventions that support the creation of dementia friendly environments in health care: protocol for a realist review

Following the scoping in phase 1, phase 2 search terms will be refined to reflect the theory under investigation. For example, an emerging theory about organisational processes in change management would generate search terms of
‘change agent’ ‘change management’ ‘knowledge translation’ ‘opinion leader’ ‘knowledge transfer’
In PubMed, these would be operationalised using Boolean terms:
hospital AND (change agent OR change management OR knowledge translation OR opinion leader OR knowledge transfer)
