Specialist information for emergency care staff
A one-stop information shop for emergency care staff managed by the Emergency Medicine Research Group at the University of Warwick - the National electronic Library for Health (NeLH) is now on line, the NHS Information Authority announced this week.
A reference source containing clinical and managerial information relating to all aspects of emergency care, the new virtual branch library of the NeLH, has been developed to support the work of busy emergency care health professionals.
Dr Matthew Cooke, Senior Clinical Lecturer in Emergency Care at the University of Warwick and Project Director said: “Our aim is to make the web site the first place emergency care staff will look when needing clinical or managerial information. It will be equally useful to all emergency care staff including ambulance staff, primary care workers, A&E departments and minor injuries unit staff.”
The new emergency care resource is available from www.nelh.nhs.uk/ and is managed by the Emergency Medicine Research Group at University of Warwick.
