How do I find articles on smartphone use at the bedside?
In the first line in the advanced search in CINAHL, include suggested alternatives to the word smartphone. Sometimes it is referred to as two words “smart phone” and the database only retrieves the exact words you type in so this is one way to get more articles. Other synonyms to use are: computers, hand held, and "wireless communications." You will see these terms next to "Subjects" when you look at your search results, so this is one way to get ideas of other search terms (look at the terms next to “Subjects” which will appear right under the title and brief summary of your article in your search results in CINAHL). Additionally, a suggested additional term to "bedside" is "nursing practice," because many articles will discuss how smartphones are used in patient interactions, but not use the exact term bedside.
The attached image demonstrates how to enter in these terms in the advanced search in CINAHL.
