Professional Revalidation
Whether you are a nurse or other healthcare professional, attending a short course about finding evidence can help to support your continuing professional development and provide evidence that you are keeping up to date.

Assistance with literature searches
If you are a member of staff working on a dissertation, coursework, a systematic review or other piece of research where you need to do you own literature search, it is possible to gain assistance with this component on specific projects. You can guide the search strategy but obtain assistance with it at the same time, as well as learning tips and tricks for future searches.

Sessions are arranged at a date and time to suit you and can be offered face-to-face or remotely.
