eTOC pilot service

A new service from The Staff Libraryjama

From 16 June we will be piloting our electronic table of contents service (eTOC) which uses emails to update the recipient of the latest content of their favourite journals.  Initially we are focussing on just two of the hundreds of online publications – New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) and the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA). However, if there is sufficient interest we hope to extend this to include requests and other quality journals.

Sample content would look like this – following the links would bring up the article abstract. If we do not have a subscription to the journal, we would order the article for you as part of our inter-library loan service.

nejmNew England Journal of Medicine (24 new articles):

Tattoos and Sarcoidosis
Spot Diagnosis
Pharmacology and the Treatment of Complicated Skin and Skin-Structure Infections
Management of Skin Abscesses
Pregnancy and Infection
Adverse Health Effects of Marijuana Use

If you are interested in taking part or would like to know more, please contact Jan Read or email the Staff Library on 66 1362. Thank you.

CQC: Review of children’s transition to adult health services

Care Quality Commission (CQC)

From the pond into the sea: children’s transition to adult health services

This review found that young people with complex health needs do not always receive the necessary care and support when they move on to adult care services. The transition process can be a vulnerable time for young people and their families. During this period, they stop receiving health services that they may have had since a young age and move on to equivalent adult services which can be structured and funded differently. The review found that there are many committed professionals providing high-quality care but that system-wide change is needed in order to make the transition between services smoother for patients and families.

“This report describes a health and social care system that
is not working, that is letting down many desperately ill
youngsters at a critical time in their lives. We have put the
interests of a system that is no longer fit for purpose above
the interests of the people it is supposed to serve.”
