CINAHL Subject Headings

"The CINAHL subject headings are based on the MeSH headings, with additional specific nursing and allied health headings added as appropriate. Each year, the headings are updated and revised relative to terminology needed in these fields. In addition, new terms from MeSH may be added as well."

Wessex Annotated Subject Heading Index

"This annotated index to the Wessex Classification Scheme was produced primarily for cataloguers within the SWIMS Network (formerly SWRLIN) Cataloguing Co-operative. The Classification Scheme has been adopted by other library networks in the UK and is widely used. Each indexing term in the annotated index refers to a suggested classification number or numbers within the Wessex Scheme. The index, however, should never be used as a classification tool on its own.

Wessex Classification Scheme

"The Wessex Classification Scheme is a revision of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) schedules incorporating current UK medical and health practice. The scheme was originally created by the librarians of the Wessex Regional Library and Information Network (WRLIN) and is now overseen by a working group of the SWIMS Network and other users of the scheme."

EPOC Taxonomy

"The first EPOC taxonomy of health systems interventions was developed in 2002, and included the following categories: (1) professional interventions; (2) financial interventions; (3) organisational interventions; and (4) regulatory interventions. This taxonomy was extensively revised and updated between 2013 and 2015 to address key gaps and also to bring the EPOC taxonomy into alignment with other taxonomies that were being used to classify health systems interventions in widely used online databases (Lavis 2015).
