Respond to Colleague 1,
You are welcome to share your experiences with the Walden Library search database. It was a great way for you to discover relevant articles. You said that Thoreau’s search at Walden University Library is easy to navigate and user-friendly. It is important to use peer-reviewed, reputable sources when creating credible works. You can enhance your searching process by using the advanced option of the database. You can refine your search using specific fields such as author, date of publication, or publication title to narrow your results down to the most relevant articles. The Cochrane Library is another resource that you might find helpful. It is a database dedicated to evidence-based research. The Cochrane Library provides easy access to clinical trials, systematic reviews and other health-related research. Hope this will help in future research.

You are welcome to share your experiences with finding relevant articles using PubMed. I’m glad you were able to narrow your search down using MeSH terms. To improve your search, I suggest using Boolean Operators to refine your query. Boolean Operators (AND, OR and NOT) are useful for combining search terms to create more precise search queries. For example, using “pediatric mental health” AND “interventions” may yield more targeted search results. Cochrane Library provides evidence-based, high-quality healthcare research. You should be aware that all databases may not yield the same information. It’s best to use multiple databases in order to get a comprehensive picture of your topic. Hope this will help in your research.
