Research Tips: Nursing

Tip #1

  • MeSH headings are a standard dictionary for all medical terms. These are useful to use in searching when finding research.

Tip #2

  • Use UpToDate to locate diagnosis and treatment information. UpToDate also has calculators, patient education sheets, and drug interaction information. 

Tip #3

  • Your PICO question can be a great way to develop keywords for searching databases. For example: Geriatric AND influenza vaccine AND rate of pneumonia
