New Online Resource: Wiley Medical & Nursing Collection

Trust staff & students on placement at the Trust are now able to access over 400 additional online journal titles, as part of our new online journal collection!

Titles in our new Wiley online journal collection include; Journal of Advanced Nursing, BJOG: An International Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology,  Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology and British Journal of Dermatology to name a few. There are more titles to be discovered in our new promotional video (shown below), alternatively you’ll find a full list of our new Wiley titles here.

To access the new journal titles (and lots of other online resources) staff/students will need an NHS OpenAthens account. If you’re not yet registered, you can self-register for an NHS OpenAthens account here.

If you have any queries about the new collection or setting up an NHS OpenAthens account please get in touch with a member of The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust Staff Library staff who will be happy to help 😀

Weighed down by books…in a good way :)

Autumnal greetings and bleatings to all who visit the blog this week. it’s the library and I feel bound this week to discuss books, the old fashioned kind made from paper, printed and pressed, bound and finished on a press such as the one below, which is a thing of beauty….!

This image (snatched from Wikipedia – you can read further here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johannes_Gutenberg ) is of one of the original Guttenberg printing presses, this according to Wikipedia now lives in Bermuda (like the triangle). But back to our NEW book stockaka

Not to be missed!

Many boxes arrived earlier this week and the subject matter, variety and colour are quite fabulous, it would be wrong not to SHOUT! about them…

Topics covered go….

From paediatrics to anatomy and physiology whilst whistle-blowing in the NHS, there’s clinical specialities and cases with a side of hypnobirthing and transcultural nursing. Healthcare management features alongside ophthalmology and geriatric medicine and the letters MRCPGH and FRCA SOE are a given. General practice is not forgotten along with paramedic practice and safe prescribing. But here’s a word-jumble which might help!

All about JournalTOCS

Hello Blog readers, today I want to tell you all about JournalTOCS. It’s something that I as a librarian in the healthcare sector subscribe to and value as part of my daily information gathering routine.

What is it?

It’s basically a current awareness service where once you sign up you can discover the newest research papers in your chosen field or in a particular subject area which might be of interest to you, so although I primarily use JournalTOCS for medical/healthcare related information I’m also interested in American literature so I get updates on any new papers in that subject area too! So….

Why should you use it?

squirrel chilling

in a nutshell… because

  • it’s free to sign up http://www.journaltocs.hw.ac.uk/
  • you can select from a wide range of journals to have information about the latest research papers emailed to you via RSS feeds
  • many of the journals are OA (open access)
  • you can link out to the journal web page
  • it covers 73 subject areas including
    • medical science
    • business and economics
    • health and safety
    • nutrition and dietetics
    • pharmacy and pharmacology AND
    • library and information science 
  • each of the subject areas are then subdivided so you can drill down and find exactly what you’re looking for, below is a snapshot of what happens when we open up the medical sciences subject area

We like to help so…

If you want anymore information about JournalTOCS send us a message on this blog, alternatively you can reach us via our Twitter  or if you prefer Facebook  drop us a message and we will get back to you. Alternatively you can email us or come and see us because we would love to see you 🙂

MY IT Expo – Reflections

As someone with a personal interest in digital technologies, the MY IT Expo was an event that I’d been looking forward to. It presented a fantastic opportunity to see how IT and digital technologies are used to deliver and improve healthcare. It was also a great opportunity to demonstrate some of the online resources that are available via the Library to support Mid Yorkshire NHS Trust staff.

In preparation for the event, we decided that we would like to live tweet the day using the hashtag #MYITExpo. This proved to be a great success, providing a place where attendees could share their participation in the event and their experiences online. These tweets can be viewed using the hashtag – take a look at the brilliant contributions made!

At our stand, we presented the resources that we have available to create a 24 hour Library service. Where the information staff need can be accessed at any time of the day, at the touch of a button or screen. Our presentation can be viewed at https://prezi.com/dwjvx6u64hym/mid-yorkshire-nhs-trust-library/ . We also gave live demonstrations of how to use these resources, such as Anatomy TV, BMJ Best Practice and BNF Apps on our iPad.

 

A highlight of the day was seeing (and feeling!) the SimMan manikin. It’s quite a strange thing to hear a heartbeat, feel his chest move, and realise that he IS actually blinking and you haven’t gone completely mad! The moulage demonstration, creating very realistic looking injuries, was brilliant. It was great to learn how important simulation is and how it plays an integral part in training staff.

One of the talks I attended was Computer Simulation in Medical Education, presented by Jason Eyre. This further expanded on the discussions I’d had with the MESH team at their stand. It was incredibly interesting to see the benefits of computer simulation in medical education, particularly how virtual reality gadgets, such as Oculus Rift, could be used in training. Next step, the holodeck?

Another great discovery at this event was the West Wakefield Health & Wellbeing app. This has become one that I have added to my phone and recommended to friends and family. From symptom checker to care navigation to job searching, this app contains a wealth of information that can assist people to find support when they need it.

Other stands included Modality Systems (@modalitysystems), eHealth innovations (@eHealthSafety), The Health Informatics Service (@thisnhs), Euroking (@EuroKing_Nettie), EMIS Health (@EMISHealth), Civica (@CivicaUK). Visit their Twitter feeds to see how they are contributing to the constant improvement of the NHS.

A big thank you to Mid Yorkshire IT (@MidYorkshireIT) for the event!
