Information overload is common within the NHS 1, where an overwhelming plethora of healthcare evidence is created and shared daily.
KnowledgeShare, a new evidence updating service available to St George’s Trust staff, can help filter out all the noise and connect you with targeted publications relevant to your role.
By setting up a KnowledgeShare profile, you’ll receive an email alerting you to targeted reports, guidelines and research articles from curated, high-quality, high-level sources.
It’s an easy way of keeping up-to-date with new publications without being overloaded with information thus saving you time in keeping your practice and delivery up-to-date, improving the quality of the care and service you deliver every day, helping you provide the right care, every time.
Here’s what other NHS staff have said about KnowledgeShare:
“Thank you so much for this really relevant and something inspiring to read in my inbox!”
– Clinical Psychologist
“I must say this is a brilliant service I read these briefly on the way to the train station; a great method of CPD. Much appreciated”
– Consultant in Emergency Medicine, Acute Hospital Trust.
