Library training: Evidence into Practice: a CPD opportunity for nurses undertaking revalidation

This course offers the opportunity to refresh your skills in searching for the latest evidence, while finding information that is relevant to your day to day work.

Come to the course with a question related to your scope of practice and go away not only with updated skills, but also with evidence to feed back in to your department. 

You will log 3 hours of CPD time and at the end of the session will complete one of the 5 reflective accounts required by the NMC for revalidation, based on what you have learned.

The course will be running on the following dates in the Rowan Room at Berrywood Hospital:

Web site of the month: ERIC - Education and Resources for Improving Childhood Continence

This month's pick is ERIC (the eagle eyed among you will have noticed last month's web site was also (albeit a rather different sort of) ERIC). This month's ERIC is a UK site providing information on continence in children.

ERIC provides lots of resources and support aimed at parents, including guides to different conditions, tips for managing them and links to further information.

There is a section aimed at children and another for teenagers, with information specifically tailored to them, as well as message boards allowing them to share stories and ask questions.

ERIC also has information aimed at health professionals with more information as well as leaflets and resources that are free to download.

ERIC is a useful site for parents, children, teenagers and professionals with good quality information on continence issues, newsletters, free leaflets, a blog and other resources and a number of discussion areas.
