Care practices change as knowledge emerges and research findings challenge current approaches. Access to evidence has challenges. Bereavement care is diverse: practitioners often work alone or in small teams, terminology can be diffuse, and practitioners may not have time and skills for effective search strategies. CareSearch, an online palliative care resource, is hosting the Bereavement Search Filter, a validated search strategy to facilitate access to bereavement care evidence. The service connects practitioners to global best practice evidence; it is free and trustworthy. This article outlines the development of the Medline Bereavement Search Filter, translating it for PubMed and deploying it online.
