Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Mary A. Curran, RN, PhD (University of North Carolina-Charlotte)
Description: This book is based on the premise that knowledge is changing rapidly and nurses must be prepared as lifelong learners. The authors seek to teach readers to use the Cumulative Index to Nursing & Allied Health Literature (CINAHL) — the literature search tool for locating, evaluating, and using information.
Purpose: They provide "nurses and nursing students a hands-on guide to developing skills to access nursing and health care literature." The book contains detailed exercises and questions to stimulate critical thinking. Example case studies based on "real life" clinical and nursing practice issues allow readers to practice their search skills.
Audience: As is stated above, nurses and nursing students are the intended audience.
Features: Headings, tables, charts, and graphics are readable and relevant. They help explain content that, on occasion, is difficult to understand. A CD-ROM gives users an introductory, animated movie to educate and motivate them. Specific content in the book refers to this additional resource.
Assessment: This book is well suited as a study guide/textbook for supplemental or required content in a nursing research course. At times, however, the content is ponderous and confusing. In addition, the lack of an index makes it difficult to locate specific search information. Because this book is published by CINAHL it is natural to expect that the focus and exercises would be on that database search system. General search concepts are presented and other systems are mentioned (ERIC, MEDLINE, PSYCINFO, etc.) and similarities/differences can be discussed.
