Ebscohost Support describes Evidence-Based Care Sheets (EBCS) as "summaries on specific key topics, which are focused on nursing practice. Each evidence-based care sheet incorporates the latest evidence, statistics, research and references on a given topic. The references are ranked, using a coding matrix, according to the type of literature they represent (systematic reviews, meta-analysis, etc)."  You may search the EBCS using the search box (shown below).
