KnowledgeShare is available to staff at King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. This system can help you to keep up to date with current research to support your clinical practice and professional development.
You can use KnowledgeShare to:
Sign up for highly targeted current awareness updates based on your professional interests
Request evidence searches in support of patient care, service development and other significant projects
Once registered on KnowledgeShare you can request support from the library team with your evidence search. This can include a member of our skilled team completing a search of the literature databases on your behalf or providing a briefer set of high quality resources such as evidence summaries.
An online form will help you frame your question and consider the kind of evidence you require along with when you need it by.
A member of library staff will generally be in touch with you to discuss your request to ensure that it is appropriately managed.
The service is targeted particularly at searches that relate to patient care, service development and other decisions that are likely to impact larger numbers of patients (for example the development of new guidance or a patient safety initiative). If we are unable to help with your request we will be able to guide you to appropriate support options (this might be our skills training for those undertaking a study assignment).
We are not currently using the Skills training booking system on KnowledgeShare.
For more information on how we can help you develop your skills in finding and using evidence see http://libguides.kcl.ac.uk/NHS/training for opportunities at Denmark Hill and search Information Skills on Kwiki for more details of PRUH based session.
