The Information Skills Training Programme aims to ensure staff have the skills and confidence to find and appraise published research in patient and management decision making. The use of evidence based information is critical to ensuring that patients receive high quality care and is noted in all major NHS strategies. Quickly searching for information requires an understanding of how information is stored and structured in different systems and the KnowledgeHub team can help and assist you in understanding this.
These sessions are available to all RWT Trust Staff and students on placement and focuses on developing the skills you will require to search for and use information to assist and support you in your job role. Each of the sessions lasts between 30 minutes to 2 hours and provides advice how you can use specialist online systems and databases to find high quality information. The sessions are aimed at all staff, however they are particularly relevant to staff undertaking research, grant applications, systematic reviews, guideline development or undertaking academic study. The sessions are delivered by MS Teams.
The courses include presentations/demonstrations, hand-outs and hands-on sessions. Other dates are available by request, either as one to one or bespoke group sessions via MS Teams. Therefore, if you cannot attend one of the sessions listed in this programme and you are interested in developing your skills then contact the library team on extension 85322 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or select the registration request form each item to book your place.
