You will need to use your Single Sign-On user name and password to access the Library's databases.
Try adding these subject headings to narrow your search:
Medical personnel – professional ethics
Medicine – Decision making
Law and legislation
On their web sites these journals offer peer-reviewed articles, some for free and some for a fee.
Some journal articles are peer-reviewed. Peer-reviewed articles carry more authority than other articles because their content has been reviewed by subject experts prior to publication. Databases allow you to limit your search to peer-reviewed materials. By doing so, you assure that the resources you are using are reliable and acceptable for scholarly work.
*If you don't see the box to limit your search to peer-reviewed articles, make sure you have selected academic journals for your results.
