Evidence Based Care Sheets from CINAHL

What are Evidence-Based Care Sheets?

CINAHL Evidence-Based Care Sheets are summaries on specific key topics. Each evidence-based care sheet incorporates the latest evidence, statistics, research & 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).

To browse and search the list of Evidence-Based Care Sheets, go to CINAHL Plus with Full Text, click Evidence-Based Care Sheets in the blue top toolbar. Browse the alphabetical list of topics or enter in a search term.
