Allied Health

This page lists key resources for all staff working in Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Radiotherapy, Speech & Language. You may also find relevant information in the Online Library and other Specialty pages. Please register for an OpenAthens account to make the most of the healthcare resources.

Look under Evidence for research reviews, evidence-based guidelines, validated research articles and research-based clinical options.

Search Literature resources for indexes of published information from journals, conference abstracts, reports and academic theses.  Critically appraise the results to exclude poorly conducted clinical trials, reports and articles and to locate relevant, valid information.

Your lead Librarian: Susan Merner, Deputy Head of Library Services.  You are welcome to contact me to discuss literature searches, e-resources, book stock, and critical appraisal. I also attend local faculty group meetings.
