This class focuses on using PubMed tags (filters) to narrow and add specificity to one’s PubMed searches.
A comprehensive point-of-care resource for nursing, Nursing Reference Center draws in part from Davis’s Drug Guide for Nurses; AHFS Drug Information Essentials; Diseases and Disorders: a Nursing Therapeutics Manual; Taber’s Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary; and Davis’s Comprehensive Handbook of Laboratory & Diagnostic Tests with Nursing Implications. Nursing Reference Center includes “Quick Lessons” and “Evidence-based Care Sheets” on diseases and disorders; practice guidelines; patient education sheets, some available in Spanish; CE units; news; research instruments; and information on legal cases. Nursing Reference Center provides direct access to full text articles found in CINAHL. First-time users are encouraged to “take the tour” on the database’s home page (FlashPlayer required) to learn more.
