Current awareness

KnowledgeShare: personalised current awareness

Overwhelmed by information or not sure how to keep up-to-date? KnowledgeShare is a targeted current awareness service available from Reay House Library.

KnowledgeShare notifications are personalised and based on your stated interests, pointing you to guidelines, policy documents and a wide range of summarised evidence. KnowledgeShare focuses on the evidence that will change practice and you will not be inundated with primary research articles.

If you have an area of special research or clinical interest then we can set up a bespoke current awareness alert for you as well. As well as alerts, we are also offering a range of current awareness bulletins on topics including Education, Leadership & Management and Nursing (see below).

KnowledgeShare is a web-based system that is NHS OpenAthens password protected. 

Register online here or contact the library for further information.

Current Awareness Bulletins

New journals and grey literature are checked to produce Current Awareness Bulletins, in which details of relevant articles are listed by subject area. Reay House Library has carefully selected the following bulletins for local distribution:

  • Bloomsbury Healthcare Library Current Awareness Bulletin for Nurses and Allied Health Professionals.
  • Kent and Medway Public Health and Social Care Bulletin
  • Mid Cheshire Hospitals multidisciplinary education bulletin
  • Knowledge Alerts for Commissioners
  • Princess Royal leadership & management update
  • Frail and older people's care bulletin

If you wish to receive a copy please contact the library by telephone 020 3228 6141 or email library@slam.nhs.uk.

Bespoke evidence search auto alerts

You can ask Reay House Library to carry out a literature search to support your research, service development or clinical practice. We can also turn these searches into automated alerts so that you receive regular emails notifying you of new publications relevant to your topic. For assistance with setting up alerts, please contact the library.
