  10. Learning Objectives • To provide a mechanism for students to access the most current nutritional sciences and health care information • To familiarize students with specific information resources and services to support the nutritional sciencescurriculum • To familiarize students with evidence-based health care and lifelong learning skills

  11. Overview of Online Resources • Research and Clinical Databases • e-Journals • e-Books • Consumer Health • Evidence-Based Summaries

  12. Journal Article Databases • CINAHL Complete, MEDLINE, and Science Direct are most frequently used resources to find journal articles on dietetics and nutrition topics. • Search this section when you need articles on subjects, e.g., child nutrition disorders, diet therapy, etc. • Databases in this section provide links to full text journal articles and other resources • You must start at the library’s Nutritional Sciences web page to access our subscribed full text

  13. Databases - CINAHL Complete • CINAHL stands for Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature • Core research tool that contains full text of 1,400 journals and citations in more than 5,300 journals • Check the box to “suggest subject terms” and search CINAHL headings for best results, e.g., search “pediatric obesity” to find articles on “childhood obesity” • View the brief tutorial to get started

  14. Databases – Ovid MEDLINE • Premier biomedical database from the National Library of Medicine • Provides journal articles in over 5,000 journals from 1946 to present in medicine, nursing, health care system, and allied health care practice, education, and research • Useful to find articles on the relation of nutrition disorders to medical problems, e.g. “intake of fruits and vegetables to prevent cardiovascular diseases”

  15. Use MEDLINE to locate • Articles that report results of primary (original) studies • Conclusions supported by data and reproducible methodology • Hints: • Search the Daily Update, and In-Process segments simultaneously with desired range of years • Search keywords along with subject headings

  16. Databases – Science Direct • Scientific database produced by Elsevier • Provides journal articles from over 2,500 journals and chapters from almost 20,000 books in all life sciences disciplines • Useful to find full text articles on nutrition and dietetics topics in scientific journals across multiple disciplines • Contains full text of journals published by the American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics

  17. Databases – Mosby’s Nursing Consult • All in one resource provides full text of e-Journals, e-Books, images, and other documents • Unique features include full text from pre-searches of popular health topics, e. g., “cancer”, “heart disease”, “stroke” under the “top picks” option. Also includes full text monographs of all FDA approved drugs, and peer-reviewed patient education materials • Widely used in major hospitals and medical centers

  18. Databases – Academic Search Premier • Multi-disciplinary database that provides full text of over 4,600 journals • Useful as a starting point to find a variety of viewpoints on a general topic, e.g., nutrition across the life cycle • Limit search results to “full text”, “scholarly peer-reviewed” and “academic journals”

  19. Databases – Education Full Text • Full text of over 350 journals • Includes coverage of special education and educational tests • Useful for nutrition topics related to children and young adults K-12 • Includes full text back to 1996

  20. Databases – Social Sciences Full Text • Full text of over 600 journals • Useful for targeting “socioeconomic” aspects of nutrition topics, e.g., childhood obesity • Limit search results to “scholarly-peer reviewed”, “academic journals”

  21. Tracking Down the Full Text • If your database search does not provide a link to full text of a relevant article: • Print a list of the citations • Click on the Library e-Journals link on the Nutritional Sciences web page • Enter full title of the journal in the search box • Click on link to database that contains the full text

  22. e-Books • R2 Digital Library – Nutrition and Dietetics books from the current Doody’s Core Titles in the Health Sciences • Books@Ovid - full text of health sciences books published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins and other leading publishers • Access Medicine - text of leading medical and health sciences books from the McGraw-Hill clinical library • Mosby’s Drug Monographs - full text monographs for the health care professional and the patient of all FDA approved drugs

  23.

  25. New Tools Target High-Quality Studies • Increase ease of accessing and understanding clinical information • Preprocessed (preappraised) tools - practical resources that facilitate ready access to high-quality research • Pre-appraised – tools that have undergone a filtering process to include only those studies that are regularly updated and of higher quality

  26. Point-of-Care Resources • Evidence based textbooks • Provide rapid access to concise information to clinicians at the point of care • Not a database of articles from books, journals, or guidelines • Original, current, summaries written by experts • Formal systems used to grade strength of recommendations and quality of evidence

  27. Information Retrieval for Evidence Based Health Care • Using research findings versus conducting research • Retrieving and evaluating information that has direct application to specific patient care problems • Selecting resources that are current, valid and available at point-of-care • Developing search strategies that are feasible within time constraints of clinical practice

  28. Evidence Based Summaries • UptoDate • Evidence based summaries of over 9,500 topics in over 22 specialties • 8,500 Treatment Recommendations • GRADE System used to score recommendations and strength of evidence • Practice changing updates; Updated continuously • Drug database; Patient education materials • The Gold Standard of summaries
