CINAHL and Evidence-Based Practice Searching

Using CINAHL for an evidence-based practice search? Check out this valuable evidence-based searching tool from the Tompkins-McCaw Library at Virginia Commonwealth. They have gathered terms into filters you can cut and paste into your CINAHL search to limit results to:

qualitative research

These search filters were developed by librarians at the University of Rochester and Ann McKibbon and Cindy Walker-Dilks of McMaster University.

CINAHL has an option under "advanced search" to select "evidence-based practice." This will get research articles and those about EBP or in EBP journals.
