I am hoping you can assist me. I am trying to find the original definitions of primary, secondary and tertiary care. Where did these terms come from? I have tried searches using keywords “levels of care” “definitions of tertiary care” definition of tertiary hospital”, but am not finding many scholarly publications. Am wondering if you might have more luck?
I found clues! Check this out: Source: Google > dictionary.com & Merriam-Webster Search terms: “primary care”, “secondary care”, “tertiary care” References: Primary care: medical care by a physician, or other health-care professional, who is the patient's first contact with the health-care system and who may recommend a specialist if necessary. ***Origin of primary care:1970-1975 Source: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/primary+care SECONDARY CARE: medical care provided by a specialist or facility upon referral by a primary care physician ***First Known Use of SECONDARY CARE: 1976 Source: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/secondary%20care TERTIARY CARE: highly specialized medical care usually over an extended period of time that involves advanced and complex procedures and treatments performed by medical specialists in state-of-the-art facilities ***First Known Use of TERTIARY CARE: 1979 Source: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/tertiary%20care Next steps: Go to your library's website and find the health sciences databases they provide access to. Search each of the terms separately, and filter them by the date ranges of the first known uses indicated in the definitions above. Let me know if you need any more help!

Hello. I am looking for current research on the phenomenon of own race bias. For the essay I'm writing, I need scholarly sources only (I can't just use Google). Where should I start?
Hi! I can help you with that. What school do you attend? I will find your academic library and see what databases you can access on the subject. While I locate the library website, you can start formulating a search strategy by considering the following: -Are there any other words or phrases that mean the same thing as own race bias? -Is there anything more specific you are looking for within the subject area? If so, list a few words for each concept. -Approximately how many sources do you need?
