EMCare is a database for searching the nursing, midwifery and allied health journal literature. It is produced by Elsevier and coverage is from 1995 onwards.

It indexes over 3,700 current international journals and contains over 5 million records.

EMCare can be searched through the Ovid interface, and an NHS OpenAthens account is required.

We would recommend you also search CINAHL for a comprehensive search on nursing, midwifery and allied health topics as there is unique content in each database.
