CINAHL (Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health): Care Sheets & Quick Lessons

A guide to searching medical literature using CINAHL.

Care Sheets

Evidence-Based Care Sheets are summaries on specific key topics, which are focused on nursing practice. Each evidence-based care sheet incorporates the latest evidence, statistics, research and references on a given topic.  The references are ranked, using a coding matrix, according to the type of literature they represent (systematic reviews, meta-analysis, etc).  You can browse the list of Care Sheets from the blue toolbar at the top of the page.

Quick Lessons

Quick Lessons are clinically organized nursing overviews, with information mapped to the nursing workflow (i.e. description/etiology, signs and symptoms, assessment, treatment goals, red flags, what to tell the patient/patient’s family).  You can browse the list of Quick Lessons from the blue toolbar at the top of the page.
