The Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health Literature CINAHL is a comprehensive database focused on allied health professions. There is some overlap with PubMed, But CINAHL is a robust database with powerful search features and significant holdings that are not indexed in PubMed.

Citations and abstracts for literature of nursing and allied health. Also includes full-text from selected journals, legal cases, drug records, research instruments, clinical trials, and more

CINAHL is the major database of nursing and allied health information. There are multiple ways to search for research instruments in CINAHL. The most appropriate for you depends on what you want to know. When searching by the name of a research instrument, it is often most effective to use a unique term or phrase from the name of the instrument, instead of the exact name.

Clinical Key

Clinical Key Logo

The Health Sciences Library provides access to ClinicalKey. Upgraded and expanded from MD Consult, this Point of Care research and "clinical insight engine" contains:

  • thousands of Elsevier's medical books, textbooks and very current journals
  • Procedures Consult's procedural videos
  • the First Consult POC information
  • additional videos and images, practice guidelines, patient handouts, and drug information from Clinical Pharmacology
  • thousands of clinical and other medical images and videos
  • CME credits via the Cleveland Clinic

This resource is specifically designed to support physicians in evidence-based clinical care and clinical education and also supports researchers and instructors with an included presentation builder for use with images and videos.

NOTE: Users will need to create a FREE account to download or print from ebooks.
