In Search Of: Sample Searches in Nursing

This issue's In Search of illustrates just a few of the ways in which a user working on a topic in nursing can use PsycINFO to round out their research.

Recently, we've been using our Topic Guides as inspiration for new tutorials, taking the sample searches from them and turning them into live demonstrations on each of the major vendor platforms.

The searches illustrate just a few of the ways in which a user working on a topic in nursing can use PsycINFO to round out their research. Our searches retrieve studies on promoting patient adherence to treatment plans, on working with diabetics with anxiety disorders, and on managing pain in pediatric patients.

Tutorials based off of our Topic Guides make a natural pairing with the guides themselves — but they also work hand-in-hand with a series of existing videos that demonstrate, in more depth, how to use the PsycINFO thesaurus.

We've created playlists on our YouTube channel that bring these videos together. Each playlist contains an instructional video introducing the APA Thesaurus, and the sample search videos currently available for that platform.

We'll be adding more in the future, so be sure to check back for updates!
