Request an Evidence Search

Our experts can carry out searches on your behalf to identify guidelines, articles, systematic reviews and other evidence-based resources to help meet your needs.

Whether you need to locate research to support patient care, research, guideline development, audit or policy documentation, or if you want to find up-to-date material on a topic of interest, we're more than happy to help

The results of the search will be a list of bibliographic references with abstracts and/or links to websites (as appropriate to the topic). This will be emailed to you.

All Northern Care Alliance staff and students can request an evidence search*

*We cannot undertake searches for assignments/coursework where the literature search is marked criterion. However, we do offer tailor-made training to equip you with the skills to search for evidence. Please see the following page: Training
