BMJ Best Practice and DynaMed selected as evidence summary resources for NHSScotland

NHS Education for Scotland’s Knowledge Services is delighted to announce the results from the national tender for clinical evidence summaries. Clinical evidence summaries provide access to summarised, validated clinical evidence and guidance to support clinical decisions at the point of care.

From July 2015 we will be adding BMJ Best Practice to our current collection of Dynamed, Nursing Reference Center Plus and Rehabilitation Reference Center all provided by EBSCO. In addition access to EBSCO’s recently launched DynaMed Plus will be available. Please note we will be providing dual access to DynaMed and DynaMed Plus for a few months to support current users with the transition to the new interface.

These resource use robust evidence-based methodology to combine the latest research evidence, guidelines and expert opinion – presented in intuitive, accessible formats, through mobile and desktop devices.

Selection of these resources is based on extensive consultation with practitioners and a rigorous evaluation process which considered scope, access and usability, delivery channels, evidence-based methodology, and design for education.

Access clinical evidence summaries from The Knowledge Network which includes links for web and mobile access, user guides and other related services.

We have also improved access to these resources (along with our books, journals and databases collections) from The Knowledge Network homepage - more here.

Access is password free on NHS premises, otherwise you will need your NHS Scotland Athens username and password. If you don’t yet have an Athens username or can’t remember your password, follow this link.

We will be organising online and face to face training to familiarise clinicians of all disciplines with these valuable resources.  Please contact or your local NHS library service with any questions, or to organise a demonstration or training session.

Please pass the message on to your own networks through our flyer.
