New ejournal coming soon

The Staff Library is currently engaged in ordering Paediatrics and Child Health which should be on our virtual shelves in a few weeks time. It is the continuously updated review of paediatrics and child health (formerly Current Paediatrics).  Look out for future announcements when it becomes available online.

“Paediatrics and Child Health is an authoritative and comprehensive resource that provides all paediatricians and child health care specialists with up-to-date reviews on all aspects of hospital/community paediatrics and neonatology, including investigations and technical procedures in a 4-year cycle of 48 issues. The emphasis of the journal is on the clear, concise presentation of information of direct clinical relevance to both hospital and community-based paediatricians. Contributors are chosen for their recognized knowledge of the subject. “

Liberating the NHS: no decision about me, without me

Published by DoH
This consultation proposes a model of shared decision-making along the patient pathway. The model indicates where patients would be expected to have more say in decisions about their care in primary care; before a diagnosis; at referral to secondary care; and after a diagnosis had been made. The consultation welcomes views from patients, the wider public, organisations, health professionals and the NHS and closes on 20th July 2012.
