3.3 CINAHL Plus with Full Text

Let’s start with a database called CINAHL Plus with Full Text. It’s a nursing and allied health database and can be used to search more than 4,600 journals and books on topics such as consumer health, nursing, medicine, alternative medicine, and much more. Coverage spans 1980 to the present, and it includes peer-reviewed articles.

Just click the title (CINAHL Plus with Full Text) to enter the database, where I can use the search techniques I showed you earlier to locate sources quickly. I generally start with basic searches, but I may need to try different keyword combinations since articles sometimes use different words than I do. I may also need to try more than one database to find the information I need. Let’s see what I can find when I enter the search: (mrsa OR methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus) AND prevent* AND hospital
