Health Science Information Sources: PubMed, Cochrane, and Government Pages

Download to read offline

This presentation shows how to access PubMed and Cochrane Collaboration (Cochrane Library) through the FAU Libraries. It also shows how both sources can be used to find articles, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses. Government health agencies are also included as sources of health information and research. While many sources are available for locating scholarly health science articles, critical appraisal is an important step in selection.

  25. 25. Nursing Websites In addition to indexes & databases, many nursing organizations communicate their activities, research and information through their websites. Sometimes an institution may have limited or no access to subscription-based (and often expensive) indexes and databases. • Many nursing and health care professionals utilize these sites for information because they are usually free. • Most PubMed users are outside the U.S. and benefit from the information available (developing countries).
  26. 26. Nursing Websites Government Agencies The U.S. government is the largest publisher in the world. Its many agencies publish their activities, data and research. – U.S. Department of Health & Human Services: www.hhs.gov/ – Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality: www.ahrq.gov/clinic/epcix.htm – Center for Disease Control: www.cdc.gov – Healthfinder: healthfinder.gov
  27. 27. Critical appraisal of information is very important! • Author(s) • Type of publication – Publications in CINAHL and other sources are not necessarily original research (e.g., opinion pieces, editorials, or non-research based). • Type of research, study premise, and appropriate use of methodology • Writing conventions and organization of ideas • Publisher/ Journal – Location/country – Open access: a publishing model that provides access to journals with minimal or no restrictions. – “Predatory” publishers: misuse of the open access model; use of questionable publishing conduct and ethics, including peer review that may result in publications with flawed or inaccurate original research. *The quality of evidence used will affect the quality of your research and outcomes!
