I'm about to start my dissertation and am planning to do it on 'family presence during CPR in accident and emergency'. does anyone have or seen any good articles relating to this topic?

If you Google that, you'll find lots. Using Google Scholar will find you more. Going to your University library and asking the librarian to help you with their CINAHL subscription will find you more.

Dissertations are done at the PhD/DNSc level, so you must have some expertise in research by now. :) This is not a new topic at all. What new research are you planning to add to the knowledge in this topic? What's your study question? I'd be interested to see it-- PM me for details about why.

If you're doing a dissertation, you must be in a doctoral program. It seems you should already have the requisite skills to research this. I'm confused....

Are you in the United States?

I have found that some schools outside the US refer to some of the senior-level undergraduate projects as "dissertations." The OP might be in such a school.

Okay, maybe that's it, because based on my daughter's experiences in a Ph.D program (she's entering year 4 of that program), as well as the OP's other posts, the chances of this poster actually writing a doctoral dissertation are nil. No way a final stage Ph.D candidate needs to ask a nursing forum where to find "articles" on which to base her dissertation.

Even so, a senior college student ought to know how to research the current professional literature.
