Finding Instruments in CINAHL

In CINAHL, there are two ways you can search for instruments that have been used in studies.

If you know the name of the instrument, you can type the name in the search box and then select "Instrumentation" from the drop down menu before you search.

If you know the topic of the instrument but don't have a specific name, you can search for words related to your topic. In this case, the word has to appear in the name of the instrument.
