Nursing


Hi, I need to find articles quickly for a research paper that I am writing for a graduate nursing research class. I am looking for articles dealing with the topic: Effect of frequency of catheter changes on the incidence of UTI in homecare patients with indwelling urinary catheters. can you help? 


Answer

  1. Start at the library homepage and click  Subject Guides  and then choose Nursing.  You will find links to the most helpful databases in this area.  Try searching CINAHL, PubMed, and Up-To-Date. You will also find downloadable guides to searching CINAHL and PubMed.  Try keywords such as "catheter, urinary" AND (change OR remove OR replace) AND infection. You might want to leave out terms for home healthcare at first, until you see how many hits you get. For further assistance, contact Barbara Quintiliano, liaison to College of Nursing at barbara.quintiliano@villanova.edu
