Basics

Stop!  Before you dive into your project, ask the following questions:

  1. What am I looking for?  facts & figures?  articles? guidelines? 
  2. Who else is interested in this information?   governments? associations? fellow nurses?
  3. Where are they likely to post their info?  public website? journal article? conference paper?

Answering the above will save you time in the long run & cut your stress!

  1. Facts & figures (i.e. statistics) are often collected by governments & associations and are often posted on their websites
  2. Articles are usually written by colleagues and published in journals or presented at conferences
  3. Guidelines are usually written up for an institution & many are posted at the National Guideline Clearinghouse
