Running a PICO Search in Embase

Embase is a comprehensive database covering international literature in the biomedical and pharmaceutical fields. Embase also has a feature that can be useful to users seeking help to identify studies that serve as the “best evidence” for answering their focused clinical question.  The PICO search form (Population, Intervention, Comparison, Outcome) can help ensure the user has considered all components of their question!

Celebrating National Nurses Week, May 6-12

Please join the MSK Library in congratulating our Nursing community!  Originally known as National Nurses Day (May 6th) and later as National Nurses Week, the American Nurses Association proudly honors our nurses across the nation while highlighting their extraordinary work and contributions to healthcare. This year’s theme is Nurses: Inspire, Innovate, Influence.

The MSK Library supports a number of campus-wide nursing programs such as the Nurse Residency Program and the Nursing Career Ladder (N-Care), as well as many other initiatives. Additionally, the Library provides access to databases supporting evidence-based practice like PubMed, CINAHL, Embase, Cochrane and Joanna Briggs.

For customized sessions on Library and Evidenced Based Practice resources, please contact your designated Research Informationist, Marisol Hernandez.
