The UC Denver Health Sciences Library's Searching for Evidence Based Information Tutorial is designed to provide a basic overview of the concepts important to searching for high quality information on which to base clinical decisions.

Searching CINAHL

  • Each part is 1-3 minutes in length
  • CINAHL has made some minor changes in layout. We have inserted some changes in the tutorials to reflect this change.
    For example,
    •   "Revise Search" has changed to "Edit"
    •  Output Tools have moved from the top of the folder view window to the right side.
