From 1st April, there will be a number of changes to the national core e-resources content which is available to all NHS staff, funded by HEE.

What’s going?

CINAHL Plus with full-text
This will be replaced by CINAHL index database, which will be searchable via HDAS or the native EBSCO interface.

Any searches you’ve saved in HDAS that used this database will automatically be changed on the 01 April so that they use the CINAHL index.

For saved searches in the EBSCO native interface you will need to manually migrate any searches you want to re-use to the CINAHL index database. This can be done by editing the search from your folder in the native interface, selecting the CINAHL Index database and saving the search.

Please don’t forget, we now have access to a number of core nursing journals via MAG Online Library, including British Journal of Nursing. For more details, see our previous post.

Health Business Elite (being decommissioned Friday 29th March)

Any searches you’ve saved in HDAS that used this database will automatically be changed on the 01 April so that they use the CINAHL index.

For saved searches in the EBCO native interface you will need to manually migrate any searches you want to re-use to the CINAHL index database. This can be done by editing the search from your folder in the native interface, selecting the CINAHL Index database and saving the search.

Links to full text articles from CINAHL Plus with Full Text and HBE

Full text journal content that was accessible within these databases will not be available. Links in HDAS saved results won’t show, and where links have been exported from HDAS – for example into current awareness bulletins – these will result in an error unless you have another route of access to the journal, such as a local subscription to the relevant journal title, the title is available in an alternative NCC full text collection or is Open Access.

What’s new?

There will be a number of resources available to you from 1st April:

BMJ Best Practice
Point of care tool guidance on diagnosis, prognosis, treatment and prevention using evidence-based methodology and expert opinion.

EBSCO’s Psychology & Behavioral Sciences full-text collection
Database for psychologists, counsellors, researchers and students, plus full-text access to hundreds of psychology journals.

Emcare
Nursing and allied health database – will be searchable via HDAS and Ovid interfaces.

MEDLINE with Full Text
The renowned MEDLINE database, with the addition of access to approx. 2,000 full-text journals.

If you have any questions or problems, please contact the Library.

Trust Journal Club – Community services pilot

Launching in November 2018 will be an online Facebook journal club to support staff with participatory continued professional development as part of the revalidation requirements by enabling online discussion and reflection; this is a pilot within community services but will be rolled out to other areas if successful.

The Facebook page is a closed group which you will have to request to join; using this format allows staff to access discussion and content whenever convenient.

Each month an article will be posted, staff can read this article either contributing to existing conversations or start their own by adding comment below as they would on any other Facebook post.

A reflective template has also been created with staff can download to use as evidence is their revalidation portfolio.

To find the group search for ‘RD&E Online Journal Club’ in the Groups category, request to join and you will be asked two questions, your job role and place of work.

If there is a particular subject or article that you would like to be posted you can message the Facebook page with your suggestion.

For more information, contact Emma Watson, Clinical Skills Facilitator.
