CINAHL Clinical Queries now available

Press release from EBSCO:

In response to customer feedback, and through collaboration with
McMaster University, the EBSCOhost versions of CINAHL, CINAHL
Plus, CINAHL with Full Text, and CINAHL Plus with Full Text now
offer the ability to employ Clinical Queries as part of any search.

Clinical Queries, designed for clinician use, allow users to limit
searches with specific search strategies, to aid in retrieving
scientifically sound and clinically relevant study reports indexed
in CINAHL databases. Searches can be refined using specific search
strategies designed to produce results in five research areas:

  • Therapy – High Sensitivity
  • Prognosis
  • Review
  • Qualitative
  • Causation (Etiology)

As research may require different emphasis, three strategies are provided for each area.

  • High Sensitivity is the broadest search, to include ALL relevant material. It may also include less relevant materials.
  • High Specificity is the most targeted search to include only the most relevant result set, may miss some relevant materials.
  • Best Balance retrieves the best balance between Sensitivity and Specificity.
