Pop-up Library, Thursday 16 May

To support the recent addition of BMJ Best Practice to the resources of St George’s trust staff, the Library will be hosting a pop-up stand in the restaurant in Lanesborough Wing this Thursday.

BMJ Best Practice offers access to the current information required to inform decisions on prevention, diagnosis and treatment, structured to mirror the patient consultation.

With a personal account, the tool can also automatically track your activity across topics to demonstrate your learning and professional development.

Come along between 12.00 – 2.00 p.m. on Thursday to ask any questions that you may have, and to try out the Best Practice app for yourself.

Links to Best Practice can be found on the Library’s NHS webpage, A-Z list of databases and NICE Evidence Service’s OpenAthens resource list.

To support you in getting started, download the user guide or visit the FAQ section. If you need any more information, please contact the library on liaison@sgul.ac.uk, ext 5433 or email support@bmj.com.
