HSC300H5: Written Communication for Health Care

Concept Boxes

Concept boxes are a way to break your research question into individual search concepts. 

 1. Write out the question you would like to answer in your literature search.

 2. Underline the main terms/concepts in the statements you wrote for steps 1 and 2.

 3. Create a concept box by listing each unique topic in a separate row and related terms/synonyms in the adjacent column.
