Finding Search Terms

Use keywords to search and identify some relevant articles. Think of alternative terms or phrases for your topic (this is just a short list of possibilities):

doctor OR physician

healthcare OR "health care"

"health services" OR "health services administration"

"public health administration" OR "medical administration"

"health planning"

"medical economics"

"national health services"

heath AND management

health AND facilities AND management

hospital AND management

When you've found an article that addresses your topic:

  • Check the Subjects used and search again using the assigned subject:
  • Examples: For the healthcare industry, the subject used is health care industry; for customer satisfaction in hospitals it is patient satisfaction.
  • Use the Advanced Search option and type the subject term (e.g., patient satisfaction) and change the field from Select a Field (Optional) to SU Subjects.
