Literature Searching e-learning is live

Posted on: November 29th, 2017 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare has worked with librarians at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust, to develop elearning modules to support health and social care professionals to find evidence for their work and study.

The modules have been developed for clinical and non-clinical staff to help build confidence in conducting a literature search and are suitable for novice searchers and those wishing to refresh their knowledge. Each of the modules should take no more than 20 minutes to complete and are structured in such a way that each module can be “dipped into” for reference, or completed in full during one session.

Three of the seven modules are now live, with the remaining four being due to launch soon. The live modules are:

  • Module 1 Introduction to searching
  • Module 2 Where do I start searching?
  • Module 3 How do I start to develop a search strategy?
