Content of the recently-launched NHS Knowledge and Library Hub has been boosted with the addition of two key resources, thanks to an agreement between Health Education England and publishers Wiley.
The Royal Marsden Manual of Clinical Nursing Procedures (RMM) and the Maudsley Prescribing Guidelines in Psychiatry are now freely available to all NHS staff in England as e-books as well as hard copy manuals.
The RMM has been the definitive guide to clinical nursing skills for over three decades. Written by nurses for nurses, it sets the gold standard for effective, patient-focussed nursing care.
The Maudsley Guidelines is a world-renowned reference on the safe use of medications for patients presenting with mental health problems.
Helen Bingham, Head of Resource Discovery, Health Education England, said:
“We launched the NHS Knowledge and Library Hub in January as a one-stop gateway to high quality, trusted knowledge and evidence resources, so are very pleased to have been able to include the RMM and Maudsley Guidelines. Both products were being purchased locally by many organisations. National procurement means everyone has access and it’s much better value for public money.”
Sue Lacey Bryant, National Lead for NHS Knowledge and Library Services, said:
“Ensuring all NHS staff have easy access to the best knowledge and evidence available is the cornerstone of the NHS Knowledge and Library Service offer. We are committed to ensuring that staff and learners across the healthcare system get the right information at the right time and can truly put evidence into their day-to-day practice.”
