Tip for searching on HMIC (The Health Management Information Consortium) database…

When searching for a phrase containing the word “AND” use an ampersand (&) instead of “AND” in the phrase so that the database recognises that you are searching for a phrase.

E.g. Instead of  “Health and Social care” try “Health & Social Care”

Using “and” in your search causes the database to do a boolean search and look for articles containing (in the above example) articles containing the word “Health” AND the words “Social Care”

If you haven’t come across HMIC before, this database is also available through NHS Evidence Healthcare databases alongside Medline, CINAHL etc.  It is a compilation of data from two sources, the Department of Health’s Library and Information Services and King’s Fund Information and Library Service.  It covers Health service management and administration, with a focus on the UK.  You will need an NHS Athens account to access these databases.
