Workshop: Advanced CINAHL Searching (Virtual)


Advanced CINAHL Searching: Workshop

Wednesday, December 1
12 p.m. – 1 p.m. EDT
Online workshop led by Kerry Dhakal, Assistant Professor, HSL Research and Education Librarian

Join us for an advanced workshop in searching in the CINAHL database. This database is the premier database for searching on nursing and allied health topics. This workshop will focus on developing a comprehensive search strategy using a synonym searching technique. This technique includes searching with keywords and subject headings. 

We will also review how to:

  • Think critically about term use when developing a search strategy in CINAHL
  • How to identify synonyms for searching
  • Learn how to search and find subject headings
  • Reflect on why and how search strategies affect the article results

This workshop will be held online (virtual).

If you require an accommodation such as live captioning or interpretation to participate in this event, please contact Katherine Hoffman at or 614-292-4861. Requests made by Monday, November 22 will generally allow us to provide seamless access, but the university will make every effort to meet requests made after this date.
