Your Task

Now that you’ve finally reached the extraction form, it’s time to start extracting data. You’ll be taking data from the abstract of a study examining the effects of fish oil on mortality, coronary heart disease, and stroke. That article is called:

“Plasma phospholipid and dietary a-linolenic acid, mortality, CHD, and stroke: the Cardiovascular Health Study.”

We suggest opening this abstract up in a new tab of your internet browser and referring to it as you move through the data extraction form. 

What now? 

Start filling out the SRDR+ extraction form, using the information provided in the abstract.  You have enough information to fill in the fields on these tabs:

-Design

-Arms

-Arm Details

-Outcomes

When you’re done, come back to this course and click on the next page to check your answers.
