Evidence Searching

evidence searchThis service is provided at the 3 libraries to answer questions related to patient care, complex, unusual or difficult healthcare situations, conditions or interventions,   management/administrative/ commissioning questions and for those undertaking research or audit projects. We undertake comprehensive literature searches of a complex nature across authoritative sources  and databases to provide good quality evidence-based information to support research, guideline and care pathway development, audit and policy documentation. The results of a search will be a list of bibliographic references which will be emailed to you.

If you would like to use this service, please login onto ELMS and go to Make a Request.

This service is not available to undergraduate students but we are happy to provide guidance. Please look at our Courses pages for help.

Please refer to our policy for how we prioritise Evidence searching requests when at capacity.
