  • Evidence-Based Care Sheets in CINAHL


    EBSCO HOSTCINAHL 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.

    While the Evidence-Based Care Sheets are written, edited, and reviewed by RNs and MDs, they are published by CINAHL Information Systems, so they are not considered journal articles. Use these for background information and helpful references.


    You can view these helpful summaries by clicking on Evidence-Based Care Sheets at the top of the CINAHL screen:
