CINAHL (Database Instruction)

This guide explores advanced searching techniques in CINAHL Plus with Full Text (the Cumulative Index to Allied Health Literature).

Evidence-Based Care Sheets

CINAHL includes over 150 Evidence-Based Care Sheets, which provide summaries of what is known about a disease or condition, as well as the best treatment options. Each sheet incorporates the latest evidence, statistics, research and references on a given topic.

The references are ranked according to the type of literature they represent (systematic reviews, meta-analysis, randomized controlled trial, conference proceedings, etc).  

While the Evidence-Based Care Sheets are written, edited, and reviewed by RNs and MDs, they are published by CINAHL Information Systems, so they are not considered journal articles. Use these for background information and helpful references.


Selecting Melanoma will enter your term into the Advanced Search Screen as (EV "Melanoma: Genetic Risk")
