Every day more than a million decisions are made across the NHS and healthcare sector. Under the Health and Social Care Act 2012, there is a responsibility for health services to ensure use of evidence obtained from research to inform these decisions.
#AMillionDecisions is a campaign from CILIP and Health Education England, calling for decisions in the health care sector to be fully evidence based.
In support of the St George’s Trust’s Quality Improvement Week, 27th November – 1st December, we’re highlighting how St George’s Library can help staff make those million decisions evidence-based at our pop up library stall on Wednesday 29th, 12-2pm.
The Library provides a wide range of free information services with the aim of providing timely and efficient access to information to underpin quality healthcare provision.
These services range from providing access to high-caliber relevant e-resources and training on how to search for and critically appraise information, to CARES, our Clinical and Research Enquiry Service.
To find out more, visit our pop-up library stall on Wednesday 29th November, 12-2pm, Ingredients Restaurant, Level 1, Lanesborough Wing or join the campaign by sharing your thoughts and experiences on Twitter using the hashtag #AMillionDecisions.
