    Search : Title: “acute pain” AND All fields: children
    Display combined results.
    Then choose from results:
    A Randomized, Controlled Trial of Acetaminophen, Ibuprofen, and Codeine for Acute pain Relief in Children With Musculoskeletal Trauma. Author: Clark, Eric et al
    Pediatrics Mar2007, Vol. 119 Issue 3, p460-467
    Display how to – save/mark record - save search - table view
  • Use the “Find ejournal” tab to search for an electronic version of a journal.
    Search title: “Critical Care Nurse” (contains)
    Search title: “Pain” – exact title search
    If there is only one supplier of the journal, clicking on the journal name will take you directly to the journal home page. If there are two or more suppliers, clicking on the journal name will take you to the “Source It” screen, so you can see the holdings runs.
    [Tip: Don’t forget it will open in a new window OR in an existing open window, so look at other open windows]
    each supplier will have different features available from their sites
    Suggested approach – have a look at each site – eg
    Academic search premier – more search options (more databases with nursing content sit on this platform)
    Informit (more on Australian content) – can search in the journal or can search the content of the Meditext database
    Synergy ( a journal package that has full text journals) Browse the journals to see those journals relevant to nursing
    All three sites above expand the options for finding more of the evidence based literature on a topic.
