We’ve previously blogged about the many Health Education England e-Learning for healthcare programmes NHS Healthcare professionals are able to access for free.
In this blog post we’re focusing on the Literature Searching e-Learning programme.
The Literature Searching e-Learning programme contains a number of modules, each of which are designed to help the healthcare workforce build confidence to search published literature for evidence relevant to their work, study & research. Each of the modules should take no more than 20 minutes to complete and can be ‘dipped into’ for reference, or completed to obtain a certificate.
You can access Health Education England e-Learning for healthcare programmes with your NHS OpenAthens account. More information can be found in this blog post.
The current modules in the e-Learning programme are:
Building the foundations
Three modules to enable users to assess their current level of skill in literature searching, find out more about the resources available and how to get started with planning a search.
Developing the skills
Three modules to enable users to narrow/broaden their searches and use subject headings to find more relevant articles in less time.
Applying the skills
- Module 7 How to search the Healthcare Databases (HDAS) (coming soon)
