Advanced Searches

Complex, robust and reproducible searches, including for systematic review and informing research, should be conducted in bibliographic databases such as Medline, Embase and CINAHL rather than using the NHS Knowledge and Library Hub quick search.

You will need an NHS OpenAthens account to access the databases.
Visit our OpenAthens page for further information and to register for an account.

Direct links to the relevant databases can be accessed via:


EBSCO (CINAHL, Medline, K&L Hub)

ProQuest (PsycINFO, BNI)
