DescriptionDescription of methods used for collection/generation of data: <Include links or references to publications or other documentation containing experimental design or protocols used in data collection> To identify studies to include or consider for this systematic review, the review team worked with a medical librarian to develop detailed search strategies for each database. The search was developed for PubMed (NLM) and was translated to Embase (Elsevier), CINAHL (EbscoHost) and Cochrane Central (Wiley) using a combination of keywords and subject headings. A grey literature search included ClinicalTrials.gov and the TRIP database. The search included no major limits or date restrictions. The final search was completed on September 15, 2021. PubMed (NLM) from inception to 9/15/2021 (349 Results) Embase (Elsevier) from inception to 9/15/2021 (284 Results) CINAHL (EbscoHost) from inception to 9/15/2021 (33 Results) Cochrane Central (Wiley) from inception to 9/15/2021 (71 Results) The search resulted in 923 studies (186 from grey literature sources). 159 duplicate studies were found and omitted using Endnote X.7 for the deduplication of records and 764 references were eligible to screen. Studies were screened by title and abstract by two blinded and independent reviewers. If a tiebreaker was needed, a third reviewer was called in. This process was repeated for full text article screening and article selection.
