Here is a summary of the information regarding CINAHL tutorials.
Duke has a great site for tutorials.  I use their OVID tutorial and the
CINAHL is pretty good.  The thing I did not like about this is that it is
not as interactive as the OVID tutorial.  This is a good tutorial. It also
got good reviewers from the submitter.

Monash U has a nice online, basic guide: sheets
Comes with good recommendations

     The CINHAL tutorial is on PowerPoint and can be accessed directly from

One video was mentioned twice.
My best intro is a video done by
the CINAHL company called "See the cites with Cinahl". It is generic so it
not matter what vendor you access Cinahl through online.

She sent me a really GOOD presentation on CINAHL through OVID.  I will
definitely being using some of the ideas from that.

I was not going to cover EBM at all in this session, but here are some
answers that I got on that topic.  It might be useful for future use.

Katie Nesbitt has done a great guide (for advanced practice nurses) on EBM
filters for searching CINAHL on Ovid:

The Edward G. Miner library at the U of Rochester Med Center produced:
Evidence-based Filters for Ovid CINAHL Searches

Also, the University of York maintains the website: search strategy for
and meta-analyses in MEDLINE and CINAHL

good nursing resources on the Net

The Northern Wisconsin AHEC website has an excellent one page "cheat sheet"
