Library and Knowledge Service staff presented at the 2016 BSUH Multidisciplinary Education Event on 13 September at Princess Royal Hospital. We offered sessions on, KnowledgeShare to support evidence-based practice, going beyond Google, iris and online learning and better networking with Twitter. If you missed any of these, many are available as part of our teaching programme.
