I am searching for journal articles about the "dental emergency responder act of 2011" and keep getting a "no records found" what am I doing wrong?
Since this bill has not yet been enacted into law (HR570 passed by voice vote in the House of Representatives, but has not been voted on in the Senate – see a summary of the proposed legislation here: http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d112:h.r.570:), there is not much to be found in any health database you may have tried like CINAHL, MedLine, Health Source Consumer, Health Source Nursing, ProQuest Health and Medicine, or Journals@OVID.
You are likely to have better luck with databases that deal with legal and social issues rather than medical ones. ProQuest Central offers a number of full text articles when using the keywords “dental emergency responder” or “dental emergency responder act” or “h. r. 570”, but be sure to limit to items published after 2010 – there have been previous versions of this bill, most recently in 2009. Opposing Viewpoints in Context also has some limited materials when searching for “dental emergency responder”.
Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance to you in gathering materials.
