Final module added to Literature Searching e-learning programme

Posted on: September 11th, 2018 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has worked with librarians at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust to launch the final module within its Literature Searching e-learning programme.

The Literature Searching programme aims to support health and social care professionals find evidence for their work and study.

Module 7, How to Search the Healthcare Databases, aims to pull together the learning from earlier modules within the programme and apply the skills learnt here to use the Healthcare Databases Advanced Search , which is provided through a partnership between HEE and NICE.

This final module can also be used in its own right by people who are familiar with literature searching but would like to try searching the Healthcare Databases for the first time or need to refresh their skills. Module 7 is accessible without having completed the earlier modules.

The resource is a mix of explanatory material, video demonstrations and opportunities to ‘check understanding’ via practice search screens.

To access the e-learning visit: https://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/literature-searching/ . It will be available on ESR shortly.

New modules added to Literature Searching e-learning programme

Posted on: March 7th, 2018 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare has worked with librarians at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust to add new modules to the existing e-learning programme 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.

Modules four, five and six were launched recently and added to the existing three modules. There is one remaining module to be completed, which will launch soon. The live modules are:

Building the foundations

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

Developing the skills

  • Modules 4 Too many results? How to narrow your search – recently added
  • Module 5 Too few results? How to broaden your search – recently added
  • Module 6 Searching with subject headings – recently added.
