Kurmet Danebek, Nursing Student (Kazakhstan)

August 9, 2022

Please briefly describe who you are and your institution.

I am Kurmet Danebek a nursing student in my junior year at Nazarbayev University School of Medicine, in Kazakhstan.

What problem(s) were you attempting to solve with ClinicalKey?

I had some issues finding the clinical cases of pathologies with accessible media. Because medical media is not easily searchable on the internet, I was glad to find the media I was looking for in my nursing course presentations. A lot of what I found on the internet was old media. In my native Kazakh and Russian languages, I could not find enough statistics and media for the simple nursing assignments.

What three benefits have you experienced since using ClinicalKey?

First and foremost, I really enjoy the search bar... It gave me more control over what kind of materials I would like to see. Secondly, the content was new to me. I encountered new ways of searching the topic. Not just by reading, but also by seeing real patient cases and media. Thirdly, the platform is user-friendly.

How do you use ClinicalKey in your day-to-day workflow?

In my clinical rotation at the rheumatology department, I use ClinicalKey for theorizing patient management. I searched for the proper diet and pain levels of people with rheumatoid arthritis. It has been a great tool for me to feel more confident in clinical scenarios, when with qualified physicians.

What’s the primary reason you would recommend ClinicalKey?

I would recommend that my nursing peers to use ClinicalKey for capstone or course projects. It gave me a lot of eye-catching media tools that are really up-to-date. Even though only a small number of nurses know English in Kazakhstan, I would still recommend playing around with the platform due to its user-friendliness.
