    CINAHL provides nearly 150 Evidence-Based Care Sheets, which are designed to give a "general informational overview of the subject for the healthcare professional" on a variety of topics. Most are two pages long and include information on "What We Know" and "What We Can Do," supported by a list of References for further information.EBSCO HOST
