A Library and Evidence service for primary care staff

Health Education England have funded a 2-year pilot project for a Knowledge Specialist (professionally-qualified librarian) to establish and embed a library and evidence service for all staff and student groups within primary care in Derbyshire. This session will introduce you to the new Knowledge Specialist, Chloe Turner, who will give a quick overview of some of the services and resources that might be able to help you in your daily work. This could be related to patient care, guideline/service development, research, professional development or quality improvement, to name a few examples.

The main presentation will last 15 minutes, at which point you’re welcome to leave if you have other commitments, however Chloe will stay online to answer questions afterwards.


You will learn about some of the library and evidence services available, including:

•       Finding articles and other e-resources;

•       OpenAthens registration;

•       Literature and evidence searching;

•       Setting up regular bulletins and current awareness alerts to help you stay up-to-date;

•       Group and one-to-one training sessions on topics such as finding the evidence using a variety of electronic resources, critical appraisal, reflective writing, and writing for publication.
