The best way to reference a page from an online database such as MIMS, AMH or Nursing Consult is to treat it like a webpage with no author.
Reference in the body of your essay
In the body of your essay you would cite the article as (Title of webpage, year of last update). For example:
... children under the age of three years should be given a reduced dose (Panadol, 2009).
Title of webpage (year of last update or copyright year) Retrieved access date, access year, from URL
For example, a page on Panadol from MIMS would look like:
Panadol (2009) Retrieved July 28, 2012, from http://www.mimsonline.com
The same example from AMH would look like:
Panadol (2009) Retrieved July 28, 2012, from http://www.amh.hcn.net.au
