Locate a total of five research databases or collections related to your topic. Each research database description is worth 30 points. You may search for these in various locations, e.g., the Internet, an intranet at work, print publications, etc. You may NOT choose the databases that are already familiar to you – MEDLINE, PUBMED (which also indexes MEDLINE), GOOGLE SCHOLAR, and CINAHL. Instead, you are expected to expand your knowledge of evidence-based sources. Places to help you begin include your textbook, which lists databases and websites that report research. The Chamberlain online library (http://library.chamberlain.edu) gives you access to several databases and provide tutorials for searching. Government sites such as those at the National Institutes of Health offer collections of research on a variety of subjects. The key to choosing the databases is that each contains research-based evidence that also pertains to your topic of interest.
As part of the literature review, the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), Google Scholar, Cochrane, and EBSCOhost databases were used in the search for sources to be utilized in this DNP project. Evaluative criteria were used to determine quality, suitability, and coverage of selected articles. For instance, the aspect of

The search strategy should also include sites such as CINAHL and Medline/PubMed as initial article databases used in scoping search for various health
For this review, 4 databases were used; Medline, PubMed, Web of Science and Google Scholar. Nlm.nih.gov (2015) defines Medline as “the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM) premier bibliographic database that contains more than 22 million references to journal articles in life sciences with a concentration on biomedicine.” Nlm.nih.gov (2015) describes PubMed as “service of NLM that Provides free access to Medline… and Includes additional selected life sciences journals not in Medline.’’ Library.ethz.ch (2015) describes Web of science ‘’a comprehensive interdisciplinary, bibliographic database with article references from journals, books, proceedings out of: Sciences and Technology, Arts and Humanities and Social Sciences.’’ Google Scholar is a free search engine that provides scholarly literature like articles and journals.
As a future nurse practitioner (NP), being trained and educated to appraise the quality research, this future NP plans to utilize different reliable databases for the research such as: PubMed, CINHAL, and Cochrane Library. However,
Many clinically relevant research studies are published daily; thus, it is difficult for physicians and pharmacists (indeed all healthcare professionals) to find the time to absorb this new knowledge. Electronic knowledge resources, specifically the pre-appraised evidence resources, can help family physicians in two ways. These resources provide clinical information to answer clinical questions at the point of care (Pull Technology) (e.g. Up-To-Date and Essential Evidence Plus), and they raise awareness of new research through information delivery systems (Push Technology) (e.g. Daily POEMs and e-Therapeutics+ Highlights educational emails). These EKR are credible pre-appraised evidence resource summarizes and provides evidence-based clinical recommendations which are the results of research studies that have been selected for clinical relevance and critically appraised for methodological quality. These resources: (i) are selected based on evidence grading methodology and criteria, (ii) present the date of evidence review for each piece of information, (iii) correlate the treatment recommendations to the specific evidence, and (iv) are continuously revised and updated.
Healthcare industry generates large volumes of clinically related data every minute. It can be in the form of electronic records, scan reports, printed documents, images etcetera. The sources of these records are technologies like CT scan, MRI scan, Ultrasound, ECG, Dialysis, biopsy equipment etc. The objectives of this smart approach are to make this data useful and productive for analysis and study of health patterns and create statistics. A detailed analysis can help the community to get awareness for improved nutrition and hygiene.
The key to providing high-quality healthcare is to have a complete depiction of a patient’s health record. Collecting comprehensive patient data is vital in forming a complete picture of a patient’s health record. It can help for improvements, and measures it for the intended use; for cognitive support to help integrate the data; to integrate evidenced-based practice guidelines and research; to build patient portfolios and for physician diagnosis; for continuing education for knowledge and treatments; to involve patients and their families into medical decision making in order to ensure accurate and consistent data; and to generate reliable information. To ensure that there are useful, reliable, and resource-efficient quality data in healthcare,
I found that chapter nine, health information management, is a great topic that is at the foundation of chapter fifteen, fraud laws and corporate compliance. Chapter nine, dives into what health information is, regardless of what form it takes (paper, electronic, etc.) and explains why the information should always be accurate (fraud, medical errors, etc.) and confidential. I believe that one of the best-kept secrets in healthcare is that patients have a right to see their chart. Quite often, we forget that we have a legal right to access our health information. Moreover, the chapter covers HIPPA and other state/federal laws that govern the protection of health information. The biggest lesson to take from this, and one you think most employees
Like the many highly regarded resources in this field, the Portland Press works toward advancements in promoting and sharing research among scholars. This organization has given scholars an opportunity to be publish and advertise their work so knowledge can be spread between the different areas in Clinical Science. Also, this database has organized their publishing into individual subgroups so individuals in all areas of academia can identify and access the information sections for easily. Furthermore, the Portland Press has a very educated and diverse editorial board that works hard to make sure the information published is credible and organized. Diversity of editorial board plays a major role for this database because information from various areas of Clinical Science is implemented in the work published and advertise, therefore, scholars with different types of knowledge and experience are used to efficiently organize and prepare articles for different audiences. Additionally, this publisher provides their audience with easy access to past and current issues in this field through journals to assist different scholars in their search for different types of
Exploration was completed using the Old Dominion library databases of scholarly articles. The database used to complete the search was EBSCO Host. The key words “assessments” and “evidence-based” were used followed by
Reason why I would care whether the health information managers in the practice are certified and registered professionals is because physicians may overlook the valuable information needed in a patient’s record. Only a certified health information manager is qualified to check and catch for errors or things missing in a patient’s chart, especially on a busy day. For example, a doctor maybe busy and forget to sign doctors notes or orders thinking he or she can come back to it. But the Him professional looks and notices if everything is in compliance and notices the error which could affect coding and reimbursement also affect from a legal perspective. Certified HIM professional are well trained and educated for these roles because they are
As the popularity of the internet has increased, people rely on internet information. Searching for an information can bring many information, but all of these information’s are not always credible. In order to apply best evidence based practices in nursing, finding reliable information is equally important. Such information’s can be found by searching a peer-reviewed articles in a library database such as the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature, Cochrane Library and MEDLINE. My current work place provides an access to their library and I access this library for information. I like PubMed articles, which provide an immense information on health care topics.
