What is The Cochrane Library?

RxTx (E-CPS and other titles from Canadian Pharmacists Association)

RxTx, formerly e-CPS, is the online version of the Compendium of Pharmaceuticals and Specialties plus other handbooks.

Both professional information as well as patient information is provided for medications, according to Canadian regulations and standards.

For users wanting to use the mobile application, the UPEI organizational code is: 0007249

From the publisher's website:

RxTx integrates the content from our drug and therapeutic products into one convenient resource along with other valuable external references.

Emcare (Nursing)

Emcare is a nursing subset of the Elsevier Embase medical database.

It is provided on the Ovid platform as part of the library's "LWW Nursing and Health Professions Premier Collection" of full text nursing journals.

It does not use MeSH subject headings, but has its own thesaurus.

The database indexes many journals that are not full text on Ovid, some of which the library may have elsewhere and some that may require interlibrary loan requests to read.

 

RxFiles

RxFiles is an academic detailing program providing objective, comparative drug information to clinicians.  RxFiles also includes newsletter reviews, Q&As, trial summaries, and up-to-date drug comparison charts.  [description from database website]

Public Health +

Public Health + comes to you via the McMaster Health Knowledge Refinery. Every article from over 120 medical and allied health academic journals is critically appraised to identify those that are methodologically sound. Articles that pass this process are rated (maximum 7) by clinicians for relevance and newsworthiness, and are then sent to this website. The articles are updated weekly and a searchable archive is kept on this website.

PsycINFO
Contains citations and summaries of journal articles, book chapters, books, dissertations, and technical reports in the field of psychology.
ERIC (EBSCOhost)
Provides access to education literature and resources. Contains 1.3 million+ records and links to 323,000+ fulltext documents from ERIC back to 1966.
Google Scholar

Searches scholarly literature across many disciplines and sources, including peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, abstracts, and articles. Note: only use the proxied link when you are off-campus. If you are on campus, go directly to Google Scholar as http://scholar.google.ca.

CBCA Complete (Proquest)

Jarvis Online Videos - Physical Examination and Health Assessment

The Physical Examination & Health Assessment video series demonstrates the complete physical exam, so you can follow along and learn assessment techniques before you work with actual patients. More than five hours of video are presented by body system and show exams across the lifespan — from children to adults and pregnant women to older adults. Full-color animations show the internal workings of the body, and checklists summarize each exam step. 

Requires Flash to view.

Nursing Education in Video (Proquest)

Nursing and Health Professions Premier Collection (LWW, Ovid)

All of these titles are fully indexed in the CINAHL database and are also searchable within the OneSearch platform, so we recommend you use one of those search engines for topic searching rather than the Ovid platform directly.
