Q. How do I find articles on the 21st Century Cures Act title IX and its relation to nursing?




This FAQ was specifically made for the NRSE 4510 class.

First when you go through the title IX law write down how this section could be related to nursing. For example, 9005 talks about suicide prevention. This seems particularly applicable to school nurses, those in nursing homes, and Veterans hospitals. It would be very important for these nurses to be aware of the hotline/website mentioned in the Cures Act, and they may also have ways to improve upon them, update, etc, those resources. 

Next, once you have a couple ideas of what those implications (benefits/cons) are, jump into CINAHL (nursing database) to see if you can find some research on your implication ideas. 

Another way to get ideas about the impact of the Cures Act would be to explore CINAHL with this search: nurs* AND (cures act OR 21st century cures act). Look to see if those articles mention title IX, mental health, behavioral services, etc.
