Over 750 extra nursing and allied health electronic journals now available

In April you may recall the new National Core Content for NHS staff in England was released. Whilst we gained some great new resources such as BMJ Best Practice and the Psychology and Behavioural Sciences collection of journals, we also lost the CINAHL Plus with full text database.

When we reviewed how much Trust staff have been accessing CINAHL Plus we realised just how much the full text journal content was being used.

Consequently, we decided it is a resource we could not do without and have purchased a subscription to the database to allow staff to continue to access all the journals that were lost when the national funding was withdrawn.

You can now access all the full text journals online again, via the NICE Journals A-Z if you know the title of the journal you want (we have a handy guide on how to use it on our web site).

You can also find all the journals via a subject search using HDAS (Healthcare Databases Advanced Search) on the NICE Evidence Services site.

Of course you'll still need your OpenAthens password to access all the journals (and lots of other great resources) and you can get one here if you haven't already.
