Your best bet for this type of research are medical databases. The best databases for medical research CINAHL and the EBSCO databases that you can find on the Nursing page of databases (link below). Choose CINAHL+All EBSCO Nursing Powersearch to search all simultaneously. If you are off campus you will need your COM ID and user name to login.

In general the best approach is to:

  1. Perform a search on your topic.
  2. Limit to full text under the Limit Your Results box.
 If you are finding there are too many to sort through on the result list try this:
  • Subject: Thesaurus Term
    Use to narrow to a specific subject thesaurus term retrieved by your search. Sort of like subject, but more specific—can be the most effective to narrowing down to your real topic.
  • Subject
    Use to narrow down to a subject retrieved by your search; selecting an appropriate subject one can get you closer to what you really want for your paper.
