These are great visual summaries of a variety of conditions, their management and treatments, and visual overviews of article recommendations. They are found attached to a variety of articles and editorials, and some of the key infographics are found on the infographics page. For example, the infographic of the NICE sepsis guidance or a visual guide to recognising past congenital heart surgery in adults.

Health Literacy is defined by World Health Organisation (2015) as “The personal characteristics and social resources needed for individuals and communities to access, understand, appraise and use information and services to make decisions about health.”

This interesting news article, from NHS England, discusses its merits, the importance of health literacy and better health. Read the article here

Clinical Outreach Librarian Update- Pleased to meet you yesterday!

I enjoyed meeting everyone on my outreach visits to Congleton Hospital and Knustford Community Nurses yesterday.

Don’t forget to get in touch with the library service and outreach librarians  when you need help with training and healthcare resources. We can help you, save your time and enable you to provide the best patient care, keep up to date in CPD and develop your  service.

As promised, I will be back in touch again shortly- have a great weekend!
