Do you need help to find evidence-based information to support your clinical practice?

These modules are designed to build confidence in searching published literature for articles and evidence relevant to work, study and research. The modules are short, each should take no more than 20 minutes to complete, and may be ‘dipped into’ for reference or completed to gain a certificate. There are seven modules suitable for novice searchers and those wishing to refresh their knowledge.
