Search CINAHL and PubMed to gather information on your target population, on evidence-based practice, and community change theory.
Both the CINAHL and PubMed databases are organized (indexed) using agreed-upon subject terms, called MeSH (Medical Subject Headings).
Health Literacy is not a CINAHL (MeSH) subject heading, but Information literacy (which encompasses health literacy), is. Other helpful MeSH: Patient education, health knowledge and patient discharge education. Do a search combining information literacy with your population, for example: Ethnic Groups, Immigrants, Homelessness; Special populations. You can also combine a searching using a population with a health issue: Wound care and homelessness. Alternately, you can add terms like Communication; Communication Barriers; Culture to your search.
