Nursing: Find evidence (Government and organisation information)

Find evidence (Government and organisation information)

You won't find everything you need for your study in the Library Catalogue, databases or Google Scholar. 

Information from government departments, non-government organisations (NGOs), and professional bodies is best found by searching online.

A simple web search using a search engine (such as Google) will often find policies, organisational information reports, standards, codes of conduct, and statistical data.  Sometimes going directly to a specific website is the best strategy.

Tips to make your Google search more effective:

Finding quality websites

Health On The Net is a non-profit organisation that promotes transparent and reliable health information online.

It contains a directory of certified health websites that have been evaluated by medical professions for accuracy and authority.

You can search the directory for websites, organisations, or subject areas:

Background information

Government information

Non-government organisations

Professional bodies

Policies, practice and standards
